* Millennium Dome:

There's no turning back the clock as it counts down to the millennium on the home page of the Millennium Experience's official website.

Whether or not you think the dome is a waste of space and money, there's no harm in taking a tour of this giant of a building.

Learn more about the dome's construction - it is so large that it could contain the Eiffel Tower on its side and is strong enough to support the weight of a jumbo jet.

This site guides you through the different zones of the Dome and informs you of the national programme of activities (such as the Tesco SchoolNet2000 Internet project).

Download teacher resource packs or take a sneak virtual preview of the Dome in 3D - walk around it, sail towards it or simply fly over it.

* Learn2 - The ability utility:

So you think you've got all the life skills you need? Well, keep an open mind and you could learn something from this website.

Visitors are invited to send in their questions and answers on subjects ranging from arts and crafts to style and social graces.

Handy tips for everyday use such as how to avoid hitting your fingers with a hammer contrast with advice on how to cope with special occasions such as being best man at a wedding.

Online survival guides will help you navigate your way through life. They take you step by step through fixing a leaky tap or treating a bee sting.
