puzzles were submitted by Jr. Skulker Uncle Brucie in response to our
article in the 11/19/99
issue about the date with all odd digits. We pointed
out that the next date with all odd digits wouldn't be until 1 / 1 /
3111. Uncle Brucie asks: "So what was the LAST date using
the same rules that was EVEN? What will the next EVEN date

"We had similar quizzes in 1961, an upside down year.What was the upside down year preceding 1961? What will the next upside down year be?"
To sign up for a free mailbox, go to http://freemail.webskulker.com . This works just like hotmail and other web-based email services so you should have no problem figuring it out. Read the instructions carefully because it is important to understand that the free email service is actually run by a company we partner with, everyone.net. It might help if you understand the technical details. If you go to webskulker.com or www.webskulker.com you get a web server that we run. If you go to freemail.webskulker.com or bbs.webskulker.com or search.webskulker.com you will be redirected to a server at everyone.net that will serve you web pages that we can customize to some extent to fit in with the WebSkulker theme.
When someone sends email to an address @webskulker.com, it goes to the everyone.net server for you to retrieve via the web interface. But if the email is for WebSkulker or his cat or anyone else that might work here, then everyone.net forwards that to our email server, the same one that sends out the newsletter. The newsletter subscription list is totally separate from the email accounts you will sign up for. If your friends want to subscribe to the newsletter, have them go to our home page and type in their email address; signing up for a mailbox has nothing to do with the newsletter.
The everyone.net signup page asks a lot of personal questions. We here at WebSkulker could care less how you fill that out. If a question is too personal and the form requires it, then just make up something. At the end of the form are some check boxes for what type of information you would like to receive. Again this has nothing to do with us at WebSkulker, it is really asking what you would like to receive from everyone.net. Feel free to check that you want nothing at all; as this will not affect your newsletter subscription.
Everyone.net provides these services in return for placing ads on the web pages and as a footer to the email messages you send. We at WebSkulker get half the ads and they get the other half. This is why the email footer will sometimes talk about WebSkulker and will sometimes be a random ad. Of course you can bypass these footer ads because you don't need to send mail from the web interface. Just change the settings in your email program so it shows the FROM address as your webskulker one. Then send email from that program, and log on to the web interface only for reading.
This isn't our favorite web-based BBS software, but it has one enormous advantage: the same user name and password that you use for the email service also works on the BBS. If we used a different BBS, then you would have to sign up separately for the two services. Everyone.net is constantly working on improving their software so the BBS should get easier to use over time. It isn't all that bad, and we encourage all of you to try it.
Some of you jr. skulkers are going to say "But WebSkulker, you already had a BBS in the form of a newsgroup server!" This is true, but very few people understood how to use that and it is quite dead. Hopefully the web-based BBS will be accessible to everyone. Don't worry so much about the topics already on there, just post messages about anything you think others will be interested in.
also provides a good web search engine that we can customize.

good way) games written with Flash animation. Our favorite is

Things that sound dirty, but are OK to say on Thanksgiving:
"Whew, that's one terrific spread!"
"I'm in the mood for a little dark meat."
"Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist."
"Talk about a huge breast!"
"It's Cool Whip time!"
"If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!"
"Are you ready for seconds yet?"
"Are you going to come again next time?"
"It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?"
"Just wait your turn, you'll get some!"
"Don't play with your meat."
"Just spread the legs open & stuff it in."
"Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?"
"I didn't expect everyone to come at once!"
"You still have a little bit on your chin."
"You'll know it's ready when it pops up."
"Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!"
"How many are coming?"
"That's the biggest one I've ever seen!"
"Just lay back & take it easy...I'll do the rest."
"How long do I beat it before it's ready?"
