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

Tools for WebSkulkers

Jr. Skulker Randy Solton suggests the SamSpade site for its web-based and downloadable tools that should be in every skulkers toolchest.  The home page has a few forms where you fill in something you want to know about, such as a web server URL or an IP address, and press a button to get specific information.  The link "Lots of online tools" has more of these.

The link "Sam Spade for Windows" lets you download a free Windows program that gives similar information.

For jr. skulkers working at  .com companies

This is a very important site for any of you jr. skulkers who work at a .com company and have stock options, or if you are thinking about working for such companies and want a way to evaluate the stock option packages that different companies are offering.  "The ten million people in the United States [some of them jr. skulkers] with employee stock options, and millions more worldwide, now have a free Web site devoted to all of their complex personal finance challenges, questions, and information needs. combines meaningful original content, calculators, an on-line options record keeper, modeling tools, a discussion forum, and 'Ask the Experts' in an attractive, intuitive Web interface." 

Skulk it from the mountain tops

TopoZone claims to be the only web-based topographic map covering the entire U.S., so you can enter any location either by city and state, or latitude and longitude, and get a map showing the physical features of the area with altitudes.  Note that the home page shows only the city/state search form; press the button "Get a Map" to go to the more comprehensive form that allows input of latitude/longitude in different ways.  Once you are looking at a map, you can expand its size by pressing the "Medium" or "Large" buttons, and press links at the corners of the map to get details of the various paper maps that cover this same area.

WebSkulker put in a couple of cities in Alaska and got back totally blank maps, so perhaps their claim of full coverage is only for the lower 48 states.  They do seem to have good coverage for Hawaii, though.

Thanks to Jr. Skulker Batteryman for telling us about this.

WebSkulker has met his match

WebSkulker keeps telling all of you jr. skulkers to go to:
and sign up for a free email box in the fascinating domain "".  Wouldn't you rather be  instead of  or something boring like that?

But WebSkulker is going to give up because he has met his match.  Jr. Skulker Goa Constrictor told us about which really gives out interesting email addresses, most of which we couldn't even repeat here.  But in WebSkulker's defense, his addresses are free, while datapimp charges for theirs.

This made WebSkulker laugh
