What time of day does the CyberSurfari start?
Dear Karin: Some Web sites offer special downloadable files that are animated movies or sounds. They are very cool and worth checking out. Plug-ins are software that extend the capabilities of your browser software so these movies or sounds play within the browser window. Most of these Web sites have a link to a place where you can download what you need. Helper applications do the same kind of thing but they are like running another program in addition to the browser. There's a page that explains all the Netscape plug-ins and helper applications at http:// home.netscape.com/ comprod/ mirror/ navcomponents_download.html. (This Web site is no longer available.)
Dear Amy: I am working on my school's Web page. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do? --Elliot, Lafayette, IN
Dear Elliot: There are lots of things you can do. Some basics are pictures of your school, the school's mascot or logo and maybe a description of your town or community. Lots of schools have calendars of upcoming events or a favorite links page made up of suggestions by your fellow students and teachers. To see what other schools have done or for some help, go to Web 66 at http://web66.coled.umn.edu. (This Web site is no longer available.)
