Do a Flyby
Have you ever dreamed of flying around the world, exploring new terrain and observing the fascinating topography of Earth? At the Earth Moon Viewer, you can do exactly that, as you gain a bird's-eye view of the oceans and land formations from one hemisphere to the next. The Earth Moon Viewer generates these revealing images based on maps, composites and weather satellite imagery. Just jet out to www.fourmilab.ch/earthview/vplanet.html and you'll be able to choose your destination anywhere on the planet by determining latitude, longitude, altitude and more. Check out views from the sun, moon or night side, and zoom into an African jungle or Arctic river. Once you've explored every nook and crannie on Earth, it'll be time to set your sights on the moon. Be a tourist in space!

Tour Kiev
Every year, many students take the opportunity to study outside of their native country. On the Images of Kiev site, www.well.com/ user/ vanya/ kiev.html you can share the experiences of an American student who studied in the Ukraine. You'll feel as if you are listening to a tour guide as you take in the local sights of this beautiful eastern city. (This site is no longer available.)

Claude the Cat
Meet Claude, a cat so crazy that his owner made a Web site just for him. You can find him at www.claudecat.com. Here you'll find lots of great pictures of Claude up to his antics, as well as tons of links to other cat sites from all around the world. But this site's not JUST about fun. Claude is also the inspiration for innovative cat research, such as how much fur does a cat shed in one year, and is the shape of cat food important? You and your cat can even contribute to science by filling out Claude's questionnaires. Who knows, this might be the beginning of the purrfect Web site for your own cat!

Dear Amy: My dad and I both use my browser software to read our e-mail, but we have to change the settings each time because our addresses are different. Is there a better way?-Ray, Ottawa, KS

Dear Ray: Your dad could keep on reading his e-mail with your browser and you could start using a free e-mail client such as Eudora Light. This way neither of you would ever have to change your settings. For some good Eudora tips, check out www.cnet.com/ Content/ Features/ Howto/ Eudora. There is a link to get some software downloads, too. (This Web site is no longer available.)

Dear Amy: I helped set up our school's Web page. Can everybody in our class be a Webmaster or just one of us?-Patty, Birmingham, AL

Dear Patty: The Webmaster for a school is the person responsible for making sure all the Web pages, links and cgi scripts (if you have any) work all the time. And, if something doesn't work, you call the Webmaster to fix it. Usually, the Webmaster is the person you ask permission from to add new words and pictures to your school's Web site.
