Dare I suggest another sticky? (Apparently so.)

Unsure about whether or not to include more general links, like Wikipedia - I'm leaning towards "not", because those tend to do more harm in cluttering up such a listing than they help those unfortunate few who aren't already aware of them.

You can convert fictional currencies in there.
Well... this isn't really a resource, but it can help you when you are figuring out the value of money in your own sci-fi universe.
