Default VIN # DECODER?

i was just wondering if anyone had some links to a website where i can decode my vin ? i just think it would be interesting to see what all those numbers mean. the only thing i know is that if the 8th letter is a k then it'* an L36. also does anyone have a full list of RPO codes, thanks
