United States Census Data: Online

"U.S. Gazetteer: 2000 and 1990"
United States Census Bureau

"Download Census 2000 U.S. Gazetteer files for places, counties, county subdivisions, and ZCTAsTM (ZIP Code® Tabulation Area). These files are available to the public 'as is'; the vintage matches the Census 2000 data available from the Census Bureau...."

They've got the same thing for 1990 census data, and a line to their "American FactFinder." If the Lemming ever wants to look through a few megabytes of text, that looks like a pretty good place to go.

Provided, of course, that the idea is to find statistics about some place in the United States.

If the Lemming wanted to find out what sort of paint Rembrandt used, or what the effect of imperial Rome's corn laws was - not so much.

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
The Lemming thinks it's interesting: Your experience may vary.
