On Joel's book

Having read all of the excerpts from Joel's book (on UI design) online earlier this year, needless to say I purchased it immediately and must say it is worth every penny. In fact, it's no doubt one of the best books (I really had a hard time putting it aside once I began reading it) I've seen in a long time. Aside from the interesting and useful information the book provides, it's obvious that Joel also has a flair for writing not to mention his inclusion of humorous anecdotes which all in all made for enjoyable reading. I only wish that there were more books like it. This said, I was wondering if any of you out there know of some good sites that provide screen shots of different UI examples. I am primarily interested in UI's that focus on database applications. Thank you ahead of time.

It's not about database ui:s specifically but it contains the best thoughts on computer interfaces that I have ever encountered:
