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

WebSkulker will watch this if good weather

There will be a total eclipse of the moon tonight over parts of the world, including WebSkulker's location.  Unfortunately there is a good probability of clouds, so he and Ms. Cat will watch it if they can.  Jr. Skulker Goat Boy suggested this NASA page that "strives to be the ultimate resource for online information about eclipses."  It has detailed predictions of all solar and lunar eclipses for the next several years, including of course the one tonight.

The logo on the site gives credit to: which is interesting in its own right as a resource on the photography of eclipses, including galleries of photos.

Multiple skulking

The ICQ program has a limitation that you jr. skulkers may run into if you like having several online personalities.  Suppose WebSkulker wanted to run two copies of ICQ, one with his real name for communicating with personal friends, and one with the name "WebSkulker" that he would use with jr. skulkers?  ICQ allows multiple aliases, but only one at a time so personal and alias names can't run simultaneously on one computer.  WebSkulker has a network of several PC's that are always connected to the Internet via a DSL line, so he is able to run several ICQ personalities simultaneously by running one copy on each computer of the network.

The mICQ program gets around this limitation by making patched copies of the ICQ executable file that can run on the same machine, each set to a different alias.  You download and run mICQ just once to create the alternate copies of ICQ; it isn't needed after that.  The copies will all attempt to sign on to the same alias as the original, but just go to the menu of each copy and build a new ICQ alias for it.  From then on, you can be yourself, a jr. skulker, and whatever else all at the same time.

This latest version of mICQ works on the AOL Instant Messenger program also!

Skulking around CD's and DVD's

Jr. Skulker Tristan Tom suggested this site with detailed tutorials about how CD's and DVD's work and how to use advanced features of them.

Trade MP3's with fellow jr. skulkers

This brand-new site asks you to register and then upload a list of all the MP3's you have.  Then make requests for songs you want and it will give you a list of other subscribers who claim to have those songs, as well as their reliability in dealing with other subscribers.  Check the box in front of the people you want to talk to, and the system will send email to those subscribers asking them to email the MP3's to you.
