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

Skulk multiple channels simultaneously

WebSkulker saw this in the Netsurfer Digest.  This site will record any TV program you want on a hard drive on their server, then let you play it back on your computer in Real Media format.  You sign up for an account, look at a TV-Guide type of display to choose programs you want to record, and they schedule the recording job.  After the program is over, login to your account to see a list of programs recorded for you.  Click on a recording to watch it.

They claim that "you will no longer need your old VCR. This site does most everything your current VCR can do and then some", but this isn't really true because with your old VCR and a TV set, you can watch the program on a big screen with good quality, whereas plays it back in a tiny, low-quality, format.  On the other hand, can record several programs on different channels for you at once, and let you watch them later, one at a time.

Do you jr. skulkers remember the site that was mentioned in our 12/9/99 issue?  They were sued immediately for violating the copyrights of the TV stations and are out of service.  WebSkulker has no doubt that will be sued also, so this may not last long. 

Give me skulking

This site makes it easy for any jr. skulker to produce their own Internet radio station, and to find and listen to broadcasts produced by others.  If you just want to listen, click on the above link and choose one of the top 10 broadcasts, or click on a category to find shows.  Click on a show to listen to it in RealMedia format.  All of these shows were produced by regular people and you can do the same.

If you want to broadcast, you sign up for an account and fill in a form describing your program (you can have more then one) and upload your picture.  This will set up a web page like the ones you see when you play the recordings currently on the site.  Then download their recording software (or they have instructions to use other recording software you may already have), produce your audio material, convert it to RealMedia format, and upload it to their site for hosting.

All of this is, of course, free.  This site was suggested by Jr. Skulker Chris Gray.

Skulking on demand

Jr. Skulker BatteryMan told us about this site which will not be useful to the average jr. skulker today, but is a hint of things to come.  This company is running a prototype in Denver, CO and Phoenix, AZ of an audio-on-demand service delivered wirelessly through a portable hand-held box manufactured by RCA.  No computer is used, all selections are made using buttons and a display on the box itself.  The second link is a demo of the device and service in Shockwave animation.
