The following (incomplete) list contains lots and lots of stuff that I like and that I want to let other people now about. This includes all types of software, comics, movies and much more.

Firefox Add-ons
Title Description
Adblock Plus 

Annoyed by adverts? Troubled by tracking? Bothered by banners? Install Adblock Plus to regain control of the internet and change the way that you view the web. You can also choose from over forty filter subscriptions to automatically configure the add-on for purposes ranging from removing online advertising to blocking all known malware domains.

It's sometimes funny to hear other people complain about annoying ads on websites and you have no idea what they are talking about. Combined with filter subscriptions, Adblock Plus can filter anything.

Music
Title Description
Approaching Nirvana - Lapse in Time 

On their website, it says:

2011 saw Approaching Nirvana become the YouTube artist of choice for the gaming community to use in their videos. With huge hits like “Bangers ‘n Smashed” and “2nd Flight” their album “Lapse in Time” rose to the top of the charts.

This might be due to the fact that “Lapse in Time” is one of the most epic soundtracks which ever reached this dingo's ears.

Services
Title Description
Let's Encrypt Certificates 

Let's Encrypt is a certificate authority that provides free X.509 certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption via an automated process designed to eliminate the current complex process of manual creation, validation, signing, installation, and renewal of certificates for secure websites.

It replaced StartSSL™ as the "standard" way of getting free certificates, especially since StartCom® lost it's reputation after being aquired by the Chinese certifcate authority WoSign™ who apparenly didn't take security that seriously.
