Angelfish, Moray and Sharks, Oh My!
If something seems a little fishy this week, hold your breath and snorkel on over to www.geocities.com/ RainForest/ 2298 to check out the action under the sea! Coral Reef Fishes is a terrific site with information on the many types of fish living in a coral reef ecosystem. Have you ever wondered how a fish could become extinct? You can find out by clicking your way into "Endangered Species." Learn all about the feeding habits of coral reef fish. Could you dine on algae or sponge for every meal? If fish food doesn't tickle your fancy, try checking out the amazing "Fish of the Week." Don't forget to wander into the online "Portfolio" and view the amazing pictures taken by reef divers off the Northeastern Brazilian reefs. This site is a great vacation spot for everyone on the Web, and you won't even get wet! (This site is no longer available.)


History Channel Traveler Before you back out of the driveway in the family car, shift gears on your browser for www.historytravel.com. The History Channel Traveler can help make even a short trip to grandma's house a trip back in time. There is a historic place of interest nearly anywhere you can think of to go in the USA, and this Web site can point the way. Start by finding historic places near your home from the regional maps. You might be surprised to find some points of interest nearby. You don't have to drive to check out the Itineraries and Features for things like historic Civil War sites, presidential homes or even historic holiday locations. But, if you are driving, don't worry about getting lost. There are interactive maps to help you plan your trip right down to the highways and hotels. (This site is no longer available.)

Dear Amy: I want to know where I can find Web sites just for teen-age girls?-Tabitha, Trenton, NC

Dear Tabitha: I searched Yahooligans at http://kids.yahoo.com using the search words "magazines +girls" and found several Web sites especially for teen-age girls. They have articles, activities and technology information, and discuss career opportunities for young women. They also have chat, e-mail, pen pals and areas to discuss personal topics. Some of these topics are not for younger girls or for every girl. So before you visit these sites, ask your parents' permission first or, even better, invite them along.

Dear Amy: What do I need to get a homepage on the Web?-Natalia, Aurora, CO

Dear Natalia: According to Project Cool at www.devx.com/projectcool you'll need at least four things. A computer with a Web browser, a text editor like Notepad (PC) or Simple Text (Mac), a place on the Web to store your files (ask your Internet Service Provider), and the software to move the files from your computer to the ISP's server like Fetch (Mac) and WSFTP (PC). For additional help, go to Project Cool and click the HTML QuickStart button. If you don't own a computer, you can buy a Web TV kit and follow its instructions.
