Here are some resources I discovered or had pointed out to me while researching and creating this web site. It is not even remotely comprehensive! You can find a lot more by doing a search yourself. If you know of a site you feel would be valuable for others interested in this subject, let me know and I will add a link.
Gary just pointed me to this. A vendor of a PriUPS system that connects to the traction battery. It's a 4kW "plug-out" system for under $2000. Check the specs. It only supplies 120V, so if you need 240V to run your well pump, furnace, or other essential appliances, you'll probably want to keep searching for an eBay UPS solution.

I sustained an email from John about his "ecotourism" holidays.
We're located at Ecotourism Holidays. Our site's new, but our general outline will be a resource for low environmental footprint travel and suggestions of locations with clean tourism tactics already in place.
It looks interesting and I would like to think that they offer the Prius as one of the car hire options. I'm further of the hope that a Cadbury Creme Egg will be delivered in due course for this high-profile mention.
Ham Radio Logging Software
I've been using :LOGic software to keep track of my DXCC status, ham awards, and contacts ever since I retired my HP Vectra with the Viper Rocky Mountain Basic card in 1990 or so. I think it would be fair to say that Dennis, the LOGic guru, knows a lot more about computer logging programs, if not not necessarily Rocky Mountain Basic, than I do. They're up to version 9.
It is my pleasure to paste his code, which results in the image above, right where I did.
Does the Prius make financial sense? My favorite financial dude Andrew Tobias occasionally writes on the subject, but you'll have to find the individual columns yourself.
A few (quite a few) words, albeit pretty basic, about cars, cars, insurance, and cars.
Comprehensive reviews of "green" cars. At the moment, the Chevy Volt is front and center (amid the blinking ads, to be sure.)
Thanks to the indefatigable Michael Grace for finding a lot of this stuff and sending it while the western world sleeps.
