This site has all manner of customizable grid, hex, and line sheet generators. Output is in PDF form so no need to mess with PS.
This site has a fully customizable hex grid generator that can output to a variety of formats such as PNG, PS, and SVG. It has a fairly steep learning curve–took me a while to get the exact output I was looking for–but well worth the time investment.
Mad Irishman Productions
This site has one of the largest collections of character sheets I have found. Most if not all are modeled directly from the official sheets.

Medieval City Map Generator
This site generates a city map in four different sizes from small town to Large City. Each has city walls and some have a shoreline. I’ve had a problem saving the image with Firefox but the snipping tool inside Windows 7 works well. If you hold the space bar, an overlay with each area’s description with show up.

Name says it all kids.
I love old computer games.
This place has a ton of old DOS games. The people running the show seem to make a special effort to make sure the games are truly abandoned.
This place has a lot of ‘out of print’ games for reasonable prices. I check the site often because they are always running some kind of sale.
