                              www.bitsandpieces.us is normally good for random stuff, the same guy also does www.naughtybits.us if you prefer something a bit more risqué.

                              Just saw the www.freerice.com website got a plug on the BBC Click programme.

                              Seems like a good cause, and run by the UN.
