Invaluable conlang links: new site

Hey guys.

Yes, I've created YANCLLS (Yet Another New ConLang Link Site). I thought most
conlang link collections (including my own,
mind you) were way too huge. I think there is need for a
site with just a few basic links in a few basic areas. A
site to point newbies to, as well as more experienced conlangers
who seek some inspiration.

As of now, I've divided the site into four areas:

* General
* How to
* Phonetics
* Writing systems

There are just a couple of really good links in each category.
And there are no links to actual conlangs, just to sites about
conlanging (or rather sites that are of good use when conlanging).
This site should contain the links that we always send to conlang
newbies on this list.

And now for the address:

I think it should be an address easy to remember (plus, it's
free! :)

Do you guys think this is a good idea? Is there already a site
out there like this that I've somehow missed?

Are the links good? Should I add or remove some? Should there
be more or less categories? In that case, which? (Comments on
the layout and design are appreciated too. I went for simplicity
and "overviewness" (yes, it's a word! ;) ).

Links to possibly add:

1. A link to a site with links to lots of conlangs, which is    *updated regularly*.

2. A link to the conlang faq -- taliesin?! (I mean the site with
   the conlang netiquette and stuff like what "CONLANG" and    "AUXLANG" and "AFMCL" mean.

3. What is the actual address to the "IPA chart with X-SAMPA
   equivalents in blue"? I've uploaded it to my own site for the
   moment, but that feels like a copyright no-no. (Copywrong?)

4. Recommended books (the kind you make from trees, you know).
   (E.g.: Describing Morphosyntax, etc.)

5. Things I haven't thought about yet.

Please let me know what you think.
