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

Funding from the master skulkers

Jr. Skulker 925 sent us this article about a venture capital firm called "In-Q-Tel" that was set up by the CIA. Small businesses needing funding can apply to in-Q-Tel, who will buy into their business if it is something useful to the intelligence or counter-intelligence communities.  

It doesn't have a definition for "skulker"

Jr. Skulker Randy Solton suggested this site that has definitions and often more about thousands of computer and telecommunications words and phrases.  You can look up a term alphabetically, or search.  You might get back anything from a brief definition to an encyclopedic entry with links to more resources.

The frame at the left contains links that will might change the list of words in the top frame to a specialized list about some subject, or might bring up an article in the main frame.  For example clicking on "How the Internet Works" brings you to the same place as the second link above, an article with a lot of links about the history and technology of the Internet. 

Skulking the web with a non-computer

" is the first site dedicated to a quickly growing yet highly diverse product category called Net devices. Sometimes called Web appliances, these are non-computer hardware clients that connect to TCP/IP networks such as the Internet or corporate intranets.... AND has two goals. First, it provides comprehensive, up-to-date news about Net devices and the tools and operating systems used to create them. Second, AND is a compendium of information that will help you begin developing devices and applications for them."

To give you a feel for what kind of devices they are talking about, the categories are E-Mail Devices, Handhelds, Two-way Pagers, TV/Set-Top Boxes, Smart Phones, and Other Appliances, including a smart refrigerator.

Skulking with the devil

Jr. Skulker Ms. 1133 told us about this site, specifically the second link which leads you to an animated talk show called the God and Devil Show.  It stars -- you guessed it -- God and the Devil themselves, and in each episode they meet with a famous guest; this week it's Woody Allen.  The show must be very new because the only past episodes are with guests Stephanie Seymour and Chris Rock.

The third link lets you interview God and ask Him any questions you like.  If you can't think of anything profound, press the button "Pick a new question" and an appropriate question will appear.

This made WebSkulker laugh
