Tissue firms accused of falling short on recycling

It may sound like an impertinent question: does your loo paper really need to be quite so bright and fluffy? But it's serious, according to the green pressure group WWF, which says that too much virgin fibre from the world's forests is being used in lavatory tissue, when recycled fibre would be just as good.

Video Games: Return to Krondor

PC CD-ROM Betrayal of Krondor was the best-selling RPG of its time. Now Sierra is trying to win us over again with this sequel. The game casts you as any one of five characters, and it's your job to guide them through 11 chapters of mind-bending, turn-based RPG action and return the sacred artefact to its position before your token madman does. The 3D graphics are superb, and the gameplay will have you going for a long time. The only problem is that, if you are not quick of mind, then you don't stand a chance. Enjoy your stay.

Network: Web Sites - J Track Satellite Tracking http://liftoff.msfc.nasa.gov/realtime/jtrack/

Worried about space junk? This site helps you keep a wary eye on your favourite orbital objects. The progress of the Hubble Space Telescope, Mir and hundreds of satellites - including, for nostalgists, Telstar - is charted against a map of the world, with altitude and position co-ordinates regularly updated and the map modifiable according to weather and visibility data. This Nasa educational project is just as much a Java showoff project, culminating in a 3D model of the earth which can be rotated or even flipped on its axis while Intelsat and the rest continue their - with luck - imperturbable courses. Another page, J-Pass, proves a difficult download but offers localised, earthbound perspectives on the night sky showing where satellite trails may be visible to binoculars or the naked eye.
