The Internet Weather Map™ (IWM) is a free service that maps latency on the Internet. As an Open Community project, it uses data from volunteers all over the world to feed back latency on the Internet into a central database. Then that data is aggregated, and displayed in table and map formats, allowing you to see how the fast sections of the Internet are running. While it practically not possible to map out every segment of the entire Internet, the IWM product traces tens of thousands of segments to give you an informed idea as to it's overall latency.
The Latency Map is the heart of the service, which displays a map of any delays on the Internet, as well as in a table format. While the table displays the slowest segments, the map normally only displays delays (latency over 300ms). The data on this tab will refresh every 60 seconds, so there is no need to re-load the page manually.
Tools allows you get information on your domain name, including an MX Record Lookup, and some additional diagnostics.
This site is dedicated to preserving the history of early computer security digests and mailing lists, specifically those prior to the mid 1990's. This includes the Unix 'Security Mailing List', through to the Zardoz 'Security Digest' to the Core 'Security List', i.e. those preceeding BugTraq. These forums are a valuable insight into the embryonic development of the field of computer security, especially as it relates to the Internet, and the development of the Doctrine of Disclosure. Goes all the way back to the RTM worm in 1988 at the very least.

This is the set of code and utilities for running and managing the tilde.club server.
A crowdsourced mapping project which aims to document the trunk lines underlying the Net, and where privacy violations and surveillance infrastructure can watch it. Has open source, cross-platform software for download that runs traceroutes to various places, correlates the data, and uploads it to the project (anonymously, by default) for analysis.
Daniel J. Berstein's homepage. There are tools and code galore here - check it out!
Publishing things on the Net for as long as the Net exists.
A website that can extract many different sorts of information pertaining to IP addresses and networks, least of all querying several dozen blacklists to see if an address has been flagged as a spammer's.
A list of open proxy servers on the Net usable by anyone that connects to them. Updated often!
Has RSS feeds of everything it's found for automatic analysis.
Amazingly, this service is still around and still updated.
A bundle of open source cryptographic software for Microsoft Windows with an installer to make it simple to set up. Includes GnuPG, WinPT and GPA (keyring managers), GPGol (a plugin for Outlook 2003), GPGee (a plugin for the Windows Explorer), and a copy of Claws (an e-mail client that uses GnuPG transparently). Also includes handbooks for newbies with crypto.
A website that answers a single question: is website /foo/ down for everyone on the Net, or is it just you?
A good blog post about using SSH's little-known proxy functionality to tunnel traffic back through your home network to prevent eavesdropping. The best thing is, you don't have to set up a proxy on the other end because SSH does it for you.
