Diversions online

Knowing how to locate what you want is key: the findingDulcinea Entertainment Web Guide will tell you how to go, where to go, and what you’ll find there.

Diversions online

If you aren’t sure exactly what you want to do, but know that you are ready for a distraction from the job, school, kids, or whatever else it is that you spend most of your day doing, a number of Web sites can keep you entertained. You can view and create different types of media from photo albums to full-length films, play video games, or even sing karaoke on a Web site like The Sims On Stage.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • To view or listen to certain content, you may be asked to install additional components on your computer (a sound or video player, or something similar).
  • Be careful to avoid downloading (saving to your computer’s hard drive) content without the original creator’s permission; you may be in breach of copyright law.
  • Because there is so much user-generated content on multimedia sites, there is no guaranteed filter mechanism to keep out objectionable content. Know that you may run across obscene or offensive material while browsing such sites. Some sites use the indicator NSFW (not suitable for work) to flag this type of material, but others don’t provide any sort of indication.
  • Check your office policy about appropriate Internet use at work. If you aren’t sure about the rules, it is best to stick only to work-related sites at the office. You don’t want to lose your job because you watched a video or played a game.
  • findingDulcinea’s own Netcetera can take you all over the world and introduce you to all sorts of exciting people, all while you’re sitting at your computer.
