The following two web pages describe the problem and what you can do about it.
don't have to read those unless you want the details. The bottom
line is that you should immediately download and install the latest
version of Internet Explorer, 5.5, because it also fixes the Outlook
and Outlook Express problem. Do this from:
But if you are running Windows 2000, then you need to do it differently. For some reason, the Internet Explorer 5.5 update, when installed on a Windows 2000 system, doesn't update the email system files. But there is another way: if you haven't yet installed 5.5, go to the WindowsUpdate page and you will be offered Internet Explorer 5.01 Service Pack 1 as well as 5.5. Install the 5.01 service pack and it will fix the email problem. Then install 5.5 if you want the latest browser. The other possibility is to wait a week or two for Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 which should fix the problem, and Microsoft is promising a simple patch shortly that won't require downloading a new browser version.
Jr. skulkers living in Pacific Bell territory in California may have noticed that they no longer get busy signals, and perhaps this is going on with other telephone companies as well. Pacific Bell is changing over to an automated type of repeat dialing. When you dial a number that is busy, you will hear one single beep of the busy tone, then a recording telling you that the number is busy and inviting you to press 3 to invoke the repeat dialing feature. The recording warns that there will be a 95 cent charge, unless you pay a monthly fee to subscribe to unlimited use of the repeat dialing feature. Before this change, you would get a busy signal if a number was busy, then if you wanted to use the repeat dialing feature, you would hang up, get a new dial tone, and press *66.
The new method is being placed on all lines by default unless the line is known to have a TTY communications device for the deaf on it. If you want the old-fashioned busy signals, perhaps because you have a modem that can detect busy lines automatically (that's the reason for the exception for TTY lines), then you can call the business office and request this new "feature" be removed.
This site has links to almost every newspaper with an online edition in every country of the world, even the most obscure papers and countries. This means that you can read the news about events in another country directly from their own news media. For you American jr. skulkers who refuse to learn foreign languages, many non-English speaking countries have at least one newspaper with an English web site, so even you can use this great news resource.
WebSkulker learned about this from the Scout Report.
This site is great on two levels. First of all, it gives you a place to write a personal diary online where it will be safe from skulkers who might find a paper diary hidden in your room. Second, the online diaries are all open to the public and anyone going to the site can read them. Isn't this a contradiction, wanting your diary to be private, yet this site is open to the public? No, because the diary writers are anonymous as long as they are careful that none of the entries identifies them.
Warning (and this is the kind of warning that will probably make you go to the site more rather than less): many, probably most, of the diary entries seem to be about sexual encounters, wishes, and fantasies.
Responsible pet owners will usually "fix" their pets, which in the case of a male will usually mean castration. (Jr. Skulker Randy Solton observed years ago that the word "fix" is incorrect. The animal was working fine before, and the vet broke it.) Imagine how depressed your poor little puttie tat or doggie will feel when it comes home from the vet and finds a certain two parts missing. But if you tell the vet about this site, then there is hope...
