To lie or keep in hiding, as for some evil reason. To move or go in a mean, stealthy manner.

To use the links in this newsletter, you must be connected to the Internet. PC Eudora users: to see this and other html mail properly you must check the box "Use Microsoft's Viewer" in the "Viewing Mail" options.
We mentioned it last weekend and got little response so we will mention it again: we now have a text-only, non-html version of the newsletter available to those of you with primitive email programs that can't handle html-formatted email, or those who just don't like html mail. WebSkulker issues are supposed to look just like our web page. If the issues of WebSkulker that you get in your mail box have strange formatting and hard to read color combinations, then you probably need the text-only version.
We don't have an automatic program yet to switch from one version to another, so send us an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us that you want the text-only version and we will switch you over before the next issue goes out.
Click on the above link and it should take you to the WebSkulker FAQ web page. This will work with Windows and the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape. We haven't tested it with AOL or any other systems/browsers so it may not work for you, but it should for the vast majority of jr. skulkers. So the question is why? Why does this weird URL take you to our FAQ page? Warning to those of you who think they know how to decode the 12 digit number in the middle: try actually decoding it before you answer the contest because you may be in for a surprise.
If you think you know all of the answers (there are three), send email to email@example.com and if you are the first, we will mention you in the next newsletter. We will give the answer to this contest on Friday in the form of a link to a great web page that explains all the myriad ways to obscure a URL.
The first site was submitted by Jr. Skulker Tristan
Tom; we knew about the others. These three free --
advertiser supported -- sites take different approaches to providing
you with technical support on various hardware, operating
system, and application software issues. Check them out if
you have a problem.

If the above tech support sites don't help and you need to call the support phone number for a product, you had better hope that you are getting through to the number you wanted. The people at phonelosers.org once managed to hijack the tech support number for a company and started answering the line themselves in various prank styles. The above link lets you listen to the results.
