’Net can help you
use those presents

The needles are dropping from the tree, the presents are scattered around, it is time to figure out what you got and what you are going to keep.

While you can shop on the 'Net, it is still not possible to go on-line to return the "sofa-size" art work your brother-in-law gave you.

You can, however, use the Internet to get some good advice about those new gifts.

If you were lucky enough to get a pet and have no idea how to feed it, go to: http://www.cyberpet.com for a one-stop shop for pet fanciers, exhibitors, breeders, dogs, cats, clubs, rescue, products and services.

You get all that with enough sound and video to make you think you are watching television.

If you want information on how to run your new consumer product the feds have a page for you: http://www.pueblo.gsa.gov with thousands of pamphlets and other information available without charge.

Finally, if all that shopping is rearranging your credit rating, you might want to stop by http://www.experian.com/is/isdiv.html, which is the home of Experian Information Services, the company that was called TRW Information Systems, one of the country's biggest credit reporting services.

"Home on the Web" is a weekly Friday feature of the Star-Bulletin.
