Dear Amy: I want to create my own homepage. What kind of sites are excellent, and where can you go to create your own homepage? -Katherine, Cupertino, CA

Dear Katherine: Designing a great Web site is not easy. Bright Sites at http://scrtec.org/bright_sites will give you lots of cool ideas and tell you why, too. There are a lot of Web sites like http://angelfire.lycos.com, http://geocities.yahoo.com and www.tripod.lycos.com that give you free server space to put up your home page by displaying advertising. You can start a free page and get good advice from SureSite at www.suresite.com. They support their free page service by selling you more advanced capabilities later. (Three of these sites are no longer available.)

Dear Amy: My parents think that chat rooms on the Internet are a bad influence for kids. We disagree. What do you think? -Laura & Rosie, Boise, ID

Dear Laura & Rosie: With Chat people can have live, real-time keyboard "conversations" over the Internet. It's possible to chat with movie stars, astronauts and people in the middle of disasters. There are tons of chat rooms with good intentions, but I don't recommend it for kids without your parent's supervision because you never really know who you are talking to on the other end.
