Our 2/22/00 issue mentioned PhederalPhelony. He wrote to tell us that his original site hosted at angelfire.com was shut down because he had the DeCSS program and CSS source code. He moved it to a new host which you can reach through the redirection link above.
Speaking of phelonies, Jr. Skulker Patricia Samios submitted her site which "profiles a different crook, crooks, or scam each month" and also has some phone information.
Be, Inc., has released a free version of their BeOS operating system for non-commercial use on PC's. This is the same system that Apple came close to buying as a replacement for the Apple OS in the days before Steve Jobs came back. When you read the installation instructions you get the impression that BeOS runs under Windows because you download, install, and run it exactly like any Windows application. But when you double-click on its icon to launch the system, it will cause Windows to exit and then reboot your PC into the BeOS.
The first link above has snapshots of BeOS in action and a sales pitch on why you should try it. The second link gives details on what to think about before you download, and how to install the system.
This announcement of the free BeOS was a hot item in several newsletters last week. WebSkulker hesitated to publish it because deep down inside, he suspects that probably not a one jr. skulker will actually download and install it and he hasn't tried it himself, but it would surely be fun to play with if you are bored. If you install it, please let us know what you think.
Our 11/8/99 issue mentioned http://www.x10.com as a great site for buying remote control devices very cheaply, and all of you jr. skulkers into gadgets should definitely check them out. Jr. Skulker Osiris2358 asked us to mention a fairly new X10 product, their XCam2. WebSkulker tended to be down on XCam's because a jr. skulker friend of his tried the original XCam and hated it. The 2 looks like a much better device for wireless remote viewing.
Note that the special price of $79.95 includes a $40 gift certificate good for a discount on your next purchase, and WebSkulker suggest you spend part of that on the battery option:
When you look at pictures of the XCam2, it looks like it runs on batteries, but look closer at some of the pictures and you will see a little power cable running to the device. The battery option lets it be truly wireless so you can hold it in your hand and move it around an area.
WebSkulker first heard about this site in the Internet Tourbus newsletter, then Jr. Skulker Robert Illes suggested it also. Constructor is a sophisticated Java application that "animates and edits two dimensional models made out of masses and springs. Springs can be controlled by a wave to make pulsing muscles. Models can be constructed that bounce, roll, walk etc. Try some of the ready made models or try to build your own."
One day mom was cleaning juniors room and in the closet she found a bondage S+M magazine. This was highly upsetting for her. She hid the magazine until his father got home and showed it to him. He looked at it and handed it back to her without a word.
A man goes to the doctor complaining of badly swollen hemorrhoids. The doctor examines him carefully, then gives the man a dozen suppositories.
