Emulation resources

I just noticed that my bookmarks are beginning to get pretty substantial, and most of them are resources related to emulation. I've been far and wide on the net looking for documentation so I'll post them here. I hope someone finds them useful, or even just interesting.

(Too many links to post here, i'll post the important ones, you can find Nes docs easy anyway)
