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

WebSkulker needs the opposite of this

As most of you jr. skulkers know, WebSkulker is the only newsletter in the world written by a a cat.  She now has her own page with pictures of her at work.  Check them out, and send her an email.

Jr. Skulker Lena Diethelm told us about this program that might be useful to those jr. skulkers with regular cats that don't know how to use a computer. "When cats walk or climb on your keyboard, they can enter random commands and data, damage your files, and even crash your computer. This can happen whether you are near the computer or have suddenly been called away from it.  PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It detects and blocks most cat typing, and also trains your cat to stay off the computer keyboard."

WebSkulker has no use for this, but would like the opposite product: a typing tutor so his cat can type the newsletter herself instead of dictating while WebSkulker types.  If anyone knows of such a program, or has successfully trained their cat to type in any other way, please let us know.

Free email addresses

Within the next few days, WebSkulker will offer free email service to all you jr. skulkers in the domain.  Forget boring email addresses like or .  Everyone has one of those.  Wouldn't you rather show your jr. skulker status by telling people to write to you with the address ?  Seriously, as soon as our ISP makes some DNS changes (to Mike: hint, hint) we will be offering these addresses for free.

In the meantime, check out for a comprehensive list of free email services of all kinds.  But don't sign up for any of them!  Wait for .

The perfect watch for skulking

WebSkulker has an old Timex Datalink watch, but doesn't wear it any more because he carries a Palm V.  But he has been paying attention to the Seiko Ruputer computer watch that until this week was only available in Japan and in the Japanese language.  Finally these are being shipped in an English version called OnHand.  The first link above is to the OnHand company, and you can order one from there (for a mere $250).  The second link is to Seiko's site about the Ruputer.  The third link is to a fan site that talks a lot about how English-speaking people can adapt to use the Japanese version, but also has information and forums about the OnHand version.

If after reading this you are seriously interested in ordering one, be aware that the OnHand version has 2MB of memory for storing your information.  This should be plenty, but Seiko recently came out with a 4MB version of the Ruputer.  OnHand will no doubt do the same, but who knows when and at what price?  You might want to wait.

Skulking around the kitty litter

Here are some pages about cats to finish off today's theme.  The first is about kitty litter:

The second is serious, not a joke.  It explains how to train your cat to use the toilet so you don't need kitty litter.

These four are pictures about cat philosophy done as animated GIF's.  When you go to the page, you will see the first picture.  Wait about 7 seconds and the picture will change.

These made WebSkulker laugh

Two jokes submitted by Jr. Skulker Ms. 1133

Faithful Spouse 

Her husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, he motioned for her to come nearer. 

As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?" 

"What dear?" She gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth. 

"I think you're bad luck." 

The Barber Shop 

A little girl goes to the barber shop with her father. She stands next to the barber chair, while her dad gets his hair cut, eating a snack cake. 

The barber says to her, "Sweetheart, you're gonna get hair on your Twinkie." 

She says, "Yes, I know. I'm gonna get boobs too."
