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

There is no reason not to subscribe and try the newsletter for a few issues.  It's easy to cancel at any time if you don't like it, just follow the instructions in every issue.  Please subscribe now while you are thinking about it!  Most subscribers enjoy the newsletter, as cancellations are rare.

I, Mr. Skulker, a.k.a. the Midnight Skulker, a.k.a. the phone phreak Mark Bernay, write this newsletter personally and to my own taste so you never know exactly what to expect, but look at my past and my interests for a clue.  I was a pretty active "phone phreak" for a time and one of the first computer hackers.  A semi-fictional account of my early exploits was published in the October, 1971, Esquire Magazine as part of an article "Secrets of the Little Blue Box" which you can read online from that link.  My career and hobby interests have revolved around the computer, telecommunications, and Internet industries, so you know the newsletter is going to have a lot of articles about phone and computer systems and web sites.  I'm not much into illegal activity any more; pretty much everything will be legitimate, but hopefully unusual, entertaining, and often something you can actually use.

I have always been a PC person since the first IBM PC's came out so the newsletter will be biased towards Windows users, including news, tips, security warnings, and shareware.  I love electronic toys and gadgets, so there will be articles about new and unusual devices -- especially if they somehow relate to phones -- but hand-held computers, GPS systems, digital cameras, and camcorders are fair game.

Finally, every newsletter will end with one of those Internet jokes that float around the email ether.  That's actually how the newsletter started:  I had a list of people who I would forward the latest joke emails to, and one day I told them that I was going to publish a newsletter and they were going to be the charter subscribers.

For more information about the newsletter, read the WebSkulker's Rules and FAQ pages.  You can also read the latest issue and past issues from the archive.

This made WebSkulker laugh

This joke, contributed by Jr. Skulker Ms. 1133,  is my favorite Internet joke of all time because it's funny and is about phones, so I will keep it here on the web page as an example of how every edition of the WebSkulker newsletter ends:

A blonde in Poland went into an international phone center to call her mother in America. When the man told her it would cost $100.00 she cried "I don't have that much money, but I would do ANYTHING to get a message to my mother!"

The man arched an eyebrow. "Anything?" "Yes, anything" the blonde promised.  With that, the man said "Follow me!" He walked into the next room and ordered her to come in and close the door. She did. He then said "Get on your knees." She did. He then said "take down my zipper." She did. He said "take it out."

She grabbed hold of it with both hands. The man closed his eyes and whispered, "Well, go ahead!" The blonde slowly brought it close to her lips and said loudly: "HELLO....MOM?"
