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

most of you jr. skulkers know, WebSkulker is the only newsletter in
the world written by a a cat. She now has her own page with
pictures of her at work. Check them out, and send her an email.
Jr. Skulker Lena Diethelm told us about this program that might be useful to those jr. skulkers with regular cats that don't know how to use a computer. "When cats walk or climb on your keyboard, they can enter random commands and data, damage your files, and even crash your computer. This can happen whether you are near the computer or have suddenly been called away from it. PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It detects and blocks most cat typing, and also trains your cat to stay off the computer keyboard."
WebSkulker has no use for this, but would like the opposite product: a typing tutor so his cat can type the newsletter herself instead of dictating while WebSkulker types. If anyone knows of such a program, or has successfully trained their cat to type in any other way, please let us know.
Within the next few days, WebSkulker will offer free email service to all you jr. skulkers in the webskulker.com domain. Forget boring email addresses like @hotmail.com or @yahoo.com . Everyone has one of those. Wouldn't you rather show your jr. skulker status by telling people to write to you with the address firstname.lastname@example.org ? Seriously, as soon as our ISP makes some DNS changes (to Mike: hint, hint) we will be offering these addresses for free.
In the meantime, check out EmailAddresses.com for a comprehensive list of free email services of all kinds. But don't sign up for any of them! Wait for @webskulker.com .

WebSkulker has an old Timex Datalink watch, but doesn't wear it any more because he carries a Palm V. But he has been paying attention to the Seiko Ruputer computer watch that until this week was only available in Japan and in the Japanese language. Finally these are being shipped in an English version called OnHand. The first link above is to the OnHand company, and you can order one from there (for a mere $250). The second link is to Seiko's site about the Ruputer. The third link is to a fan site that talks a lot about how English-speaking people can adapt to use the Japanese version, but also has information and forums about the OnHand version.
If after reading this you are seriously interested in ordering one, be aware that the OnHand version has 2MB of memory for storing your information. This should be plenty, but Seiko recently came out with a 4MB version of the Ruputer. OnHand will no doubt do the same, but who knows when and at what price? You might want to wait.
second is serious, not a joke. It explains how to train your cat
to use the toilet so you don't need kitty litter.
four are pictures about cat philosophy done as animated GIF's.
When you go to the page, you will see the first picture. Wait
about 7 seconds and the picture will change.
