Some of the following may have gone defunct, or will defunctify soon, but I'm leaving them in so that you can use them as a starting point for a search for similar info. Sometimes, for example, manually shortening the address and reloading will yield a good site.
It has been a few years since I started this list, and in that time, sure enough, a bunch of the following links did die. But fortunately, a new dynamic list, the Hover Ring Web Ring has appeared thanks to Mark Fletcher. Check out the list of sites on the Hover Ring.
Update for Summer 2002: It has been a few more years now, and this page of links is seriously in need of an updating. I'll be updating this list little by little in conjunction with the launch of Goldstein Hovercraft, LLC's web site. But for now, I'll leave this old version of the list of links up on the web in the hope that at least some of the links will be alive and interesting to someone.
