WebSkulker will be on vacation

WebSkulker is taking a trip from today through next Monday, so the next issue of the newsletter will be on Tuesday, November 30.  To entertain you while we are gone, this issue has two puzzles.  We also have two new services for you jr. skulkers to play with: free email boxes, and a BBS for jr. skulker to jr. skulker communication, and feedback to WebSkulker and his cat.

The puzzles were submitted by Jr. Skulker Uncle Brucie in response to our article in the 11/19/99 issue about the date with all odd digits.  We pointed out that the next date with all odd digits wouldn't be until 1 / 1 / 3111.  Uncle Brucie asks: "So what was the LAST date using the same rules that was EVEN?  What will the next EVEN date be?"  

"We had similar quizzes in 1961, an upside down year.  What was the upside down year preceding 1961?  What will the next upside down year be?"

Get your free mailbox

Tell the world that you are a jr. skulker with every email message you write!  Throw away your boring hotmail and yahoo accounts!  Be unique just like all the other jr. skulkers with an email address and when people get email from you they will say "What the hell is a skulker, and "Why is it on the web?"  Then they will say "Where can I get a cool email address like that?" and you will say duuuuuuhhhh, like maybe

To sign up for a free mailbox, go to .  This works just like hotmail and other web-based email services so you should have no problem figuring it out.  Read the instructions carefully because it is important to understand that the free email service is actually run by a company we partner with,  It might help if you understand the technical details.  If you go to  or  you get a web server that we run.  If you go to  or  or you will be redirected to a server at that will serve you web pages that we can customize to some extent to fit in with the WebSkulker theme.

When someone sends email to an address, it goes to the server for you to retrieve via the web interface.  But if the email is for WebSkulker or his cat or anyone else that might work here, then forwards that to our email server, the same one that sends out the newsletter.  The newsletter subscription list is totally separate from the email accounts you will sign up for.  If your friends want to subscribe to the newsletter, have them go to our home page and type in their email address; signing up for a mailbox has nothing to do with the newsletter.

The signup page asks a lot of personal questions.  We here at WebSkulker could care less how you fill that out.  If a question is too personal and the form requires it, then just make up something.  At the end of the form are some check boxes for what type of information you would like to receive.  Again this has nothing to do with us at WebSkulker, it is really asking what you would like to receive from  Feel free to check that you want nothing at all; as this will not affect your newsletter subscription. provides these services in return for placing ads on the web pages and as a footer to the email messages you send.  We at WebSkulker get half the ads and they get the other half.  This is why the email footer will sometimes talk about WebSkulker and will sometimes be a random ad.  Of course you can bypass these footer ads because you don't need to send mail from the web interface.  Just change the settings in your email program so it shows the FROM address as your webskulker one.  Then send email from that program, and log on to the web interface only for reading.

New WebSkulker web-based BBS also provides us with a free BBS system that WebSkulker can control to some extent.  You can read and post messages at:
http://bbs.webskulker.comThere are only four topics (they call them "communities") right now because we are rushing to leave on the trip, but we will build more shortly.  Please suggest topics.

This isn't our favorite web-based BBS software, but it has one enormous advantage: the same user name and password that you use for the email service also works on the BBS.  If we used a different BBS, then you would have to sign up separately for the two services. is constantly working on improving their software so the BBS should get easier to use over time.  It isn't all that bad, and we encourage all of you to try it.

Some of you jr. skulkers are going to say "But WebSkulker, you already had a BBS in the form of a newsgroup server!"  This is true, but very few people understood how to use that and it is quite dead.  Hopefully the web-based BBS will be accessible to everyone.  Don't worry so much about the topics already on there, just post messages about anything you think others will be interested in. also provides a good web search engine that we can customize.  Try this out at:

WebSkulker gets to kill Bill with a chain saw

Jr. Skulker Diamond Dave submitted this site which has twelve weird (in a good way) games written with Flash animation.  Our favorite is this one, which shows the proper way to treat an iMac:

These made WebSkulker laugh

Submitted by Jr. Skulker Charisse Mendoza

He laid her on the table,
So white, clean and bare.
His forehead wet with beads of sweat,
He rubbed her here and there.
He touched her neck and then her breast, And
then,drooling, felt her thigh.
The slit was wet and all was set, He gave a
joyous cry.
The hole was wide... he looked inside,
All was dark and murky.
He rubbed his hands and stretched out his
arms, And then...

he stuffed the turkey.

Things that sound dirty, but are OK to say on Thanksgiving:

"Whew, that's one terrific spread!"

"I'm in the mood for a little dark meat."

"Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist."

"Talk about a huge breast!"

"It's Cool Whip time!"

"If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!"

"Are you ready for seconds yet?"

"Are you going to come again next time?"

"It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?"

"Just wait your turn, you'll get some!"

"Don't play with your meat."

"Just spread the legs open & stuff it in."

"Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?"

"I didn't expect everyone to come at once!"

"You still have a little bit on your chin."

"You'll know it's ready when it pops up."

"Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!"

"How many are coming?"

"That's the biggest one I've ever seen!"

"Just lay back & take it easy...I'll do the rest."

"How long do I beat it before it's ready?"
