1. Who is the editor in chief of Tomorrow's Morning?
Dear Justin: Sending an attachment (a picture or a text file) along with your e-mail message is easy to do. Depending on which software you use to read your e-mail, look for an option or button to "attach" or "enclose" your scanned picture. It is best to save your picture as a gif or jpeg. Sometimes problems can happen at the other end because of how the mail server is set up to receive your picture. Make sure your attachments aren't too large either; a file over 50K could be too big for a mail server. To learn how to do that in Eudora and to find out some other tips, check out www.cnet.com/ Content/ Features/ Howto/ Eudora. (This site is no longer available.)
Dear Amy: What are agents that do things for you on the Internet?-Terry, Farmington, NM
Dear Terry: I think what you are interested in is software that seaches the Internet for you. Rather than going to a search engine and searching for each thing you are interested in, you can have an agent find out stuff about your favorite topics like sports, computers and the latest news. You can buy software like this or you can try out My Yahoo at http://my.yahoo.com. Since you have to register your name, ask your parents' permission first.
