Fav places? That's what I do. I've got a TON of links in a Halloween file.
I have the same basic thing. Firefox Halloween folder I created in my faves - bookmarks categorized into things like costumes, tombstones, lighting, general ideas...I have a bookmark section on my browser (Explorer) that I have organized into categories (Resources - Forums, How-to's, Stores, Pictures). Then those have sub-categories. For example, in How-to's I have 3D, Mad Scientist, Static Props, General, Sets-tombstones, Animatronics - sound, Spiders, Lighting, Dummy - sculpting.
Plus, I use the search feature a lot too. Just a minute ago I was curious about people's ideas of what kind of UV lights to use and found an awesome thread made last year that actually had comparison pictures! Really helped a lot. By the way, I am going to go with 48" florescent tubes.
