question right now is, were does the memory come from for most Pack's home
If I understand your question, "memory" is either hard drive storage on your
server (a computer you set up to run full time with software to communicate
with people who come to your "named site") or you place your files which
constitute your "home page" on someone else's server. Someone else can be a
commercial provider who sells you space on their server, or another
organization who gives you space on their server. Your corporate
organization or another civic minded commercial entity in your community
might donate space/time to your pack on their server.
If you choose to run your own server, a software package called "Web Site"
is available and Netscape Corp also has server software. You can find them
on the WWW. To help you write the HTML documents which make up your home
page, A book w/ software package called "Web Page Construction Kit" is most
enlightening. Netscape Navigator Gold also contains an html editor. (HTML
means "Hyper-Text Markup Language") I believe MicroSoft also makes both web
servers and html editors.
I got started with the "construction kit" and have had a fun time developing
a home page on my job. Right now it is down "due to technical
difficulties." A web site requires constant attention. Otherwise it
becomes "irrelevant" as time passes and your postings become dated.
Hope this helps,
