For those who love to fly through the past comes the U. S. Air Force Museum Homepage. Located in Dayton, Ohio, the museum has an endless number of artifacts and exhibits, and this Web site is no different. From the first all-wing airplane to the Boeing XB - 39 "Spirit of Lincoln," here's your chance to sit in the cockpit of every plane imaginable. Navigate out to www.nationalmuseum.af.mil and tour the museum's galleries of hundreds of planes. You'll be able to cruise over Asia during the Korean conflict, lounge in presidential aircrafts, and jetset with the stars on a space flight. Suffering from jetlag already? For those who'd rather stay grounded, there are exhibits on weapons, equipment, plane engines and the Air Force's early years. The Air Force Museum is educational and exciting. It's time to prepare for an air strike!

Dear Andrea: Computer viruses are programs that reproduce themselves and can spread to other computers. A virus can be transferred on a floppy disk, across a network or downloaded from the Web. Typical e-mail and downloads of pictures and text files don't have viruses. Files infected with a virus are always executable files or programs that must run to infect your computer. To be safe, get an anti-virus utility. Check out www.hitchhikers.net/ av.shtml for more information. (This site is no longer available.

Dear Amy: I get a lot of mail every day. Some of it is really bad. Is there any way that I can stop them from sending that kind of mail to me?-Sarah, Tulsa, OK
Dear Sarah: If you can't ignore the junk mail anymore, some e-mail programs allow you to filter e-mail into a folder. Then you can trash it without having to read it. Check your e-mail documentation for more info. You could also try replacing the part of the address before the @ sign with "postmaster." This might be the address of someone responsible for the e-mail system who you can send a complaint to. If none of this works, about all you can do is change your e-mail address. Call your Internet Service Provider for more suggestions.
