Chickenhead bills itself as, "The tragically deformed love child of New York City web junkie and canine euthanasia hobbyist John A. Wooden". But make no mistake, there's nothing "chicken" about Chicken- head! If you love humor--the more irreverent, the more twisted, the more demented, the better--then you'll feel right at home at Chickenhead! While you're visiting be sure to check out the Moron Banners in Bannertown, and don't leave before you go to the Chickenhead archive and follow the many links found there. Chickenhead is intended for readers 18 years and older, sucka!

|At any of these, you have an "avatar"--a cartoon character on-screen--that represents you and interacts with the avatars of others. In addition to the text you enter (which appears in speech balloons beside your avatar), you can use sounds, space, and movement. If you like the results, consider downloading the free Palace server to set up your own chat site.|

FAQs are Frequently Asked Questions and their answers. Most newsgroups offer an FAQ posting at the beginning, enabling you to catch on to what the newsgroup is about and how the subscribers interact before you start contributing. The Internet FAQ Archives is a Web site that collects FAQs from lots of newsgroups and puts them in one place so that you can search them all by keywords.
It's 9:30 p.m., you're about done with the PowerPoint presentation you have to give at 8:00 a.m. the next day, but when you go to transfer it to your notebook, you realize the file size is too big for a floppy, and you don't have access to a Zip drive.
| What to do? Used to be, panic. Now, however, you can simply upload the file onto I-Drive, a site that offers users 25MB of free secure storage, so you can access your files anywhere there's an Internet hookup.|
