What are your daily web favorites?

I usually hit www.slashdot.org every day, along with the dilbert zone and www.userfriendly.org. I try and see if there is anything new or interesting here.
What are your daily stops?
Where are some software related sites that would interest the sort of people who read www.joelonsoftware.com?
Where do you go when it is time to take a well deserved break? From work, nothing to get me in trouble with the HR police!

Who visits Google every day?  I do, but not to see what's new with Google; rather to search for something else...

Anyway:

Surprisingly few.  I get the impression that most great sites predate the web, and only now is the web improving.

http://slashdot.org/
http://www.kuro5hin.org/
- These preceding two I use also for RDF boxes, so I can glance at headlines of many other sites.

http://www.amazon.com/
- There is a great deal of history and context that the web is too young to show.  From the web's vantage, anything before 1995 is a religion.

http://groups.google.com/
http://www.fuckedcompany.com/
http://www.wikipedia.com/
http://freshmeat.net/
http://sourceforge.net/

http://www.annerice.com/
- Some things are more important than the profession I pretend to profess.

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/
http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/
- I never visit these sites because of the huge Java/XML/fad slant.  But an RDF feed would be great.
