My eighth wonder of the world - Internet

Internet is one of the most expanding things in the present. And after the other seven worlds wonders it's my eighth wonder.

Why? Today it is the fastest way of sending and receiving a lot of information. For example you can buy much things - from computers, cars, books ... to simple pizza. You can also communicate with your friends and family from all parts of the world. It isn't a problem to know the latest news about your American cousin. E-mail provides you easy way to connect with him. Ten or twenty seconds - and your messages are from Slovakia in United States of America. Or do you want information about Indian climate or weather forecast for next hour? Nothing is simplest. One click in program or one telephone by FreeTel (of course, it's by Internet). And you know the answer.

Also, you can search things what you want. E.g., if you are searching anything about ancient worlds, simply write www.altavista.com, add your key words and click Search. Afterwards less than ten seconds you can see, in most of the cases, more than 10,000 pages with required word(s). And you can surf on all of them. Nobody says that it is all free.

They're also available on CD-ROMs, but one of big pluses of Internet is its price. In many cases it's zero. For CD you must pay ten, twenty dollars... but also hundred dollars, too.

There are also hackers, which could damage all the net if they want. For example, they send a lot of various e-mails to ordinary people. In those mails are viruses. When you open the file, attached with e-mail, there can be the virus. You open the file and virus starts his tour through your computer. Viruses can be very dangerous, but also very funny and useful. If the virus is already on your computer, there can be a simple way to repair it. You can run one of the antiviral programs. In 85% it can help you. E.g. Melissa or OneHalf are very "famous" in computer...
