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

WebSkulker often goes to the AMC 1000 and AMC Kabuki theatres in San Francisco. He always buys a ticket, hides it in his pocket, and then sneaks in without showing the ticket just to prove he can do it. We hope that all of you jr. skulkers will be honest and do the same thing with this information. The AMC 1000 has multiple stories with a total of 14 theatres, all of them upstairs from the lobby. There is an escalator and an elevator going upstairs and almost everyone takes the escalator. During most hours, there is a single employee at the bottom of the escalator who takes all tickets. So you walk over to the elevator and take that upstairs instead, and no one will ever check your ticket! Seriously, it's that simple. The ticket taker at the escalator has their back to the elevator, yet apparently they are supposed to watch it to ask for tickets. They do look around occasionally, but when they are busy taking tickets you run over to the elevator, push the button, then move away from it so it doesn't look like you are planning to use it. Wait until the door opens, glance over to the ticket taker to make sure they are busy, then walk back over to the elevator and get in.
During prime times they sometimes let anyone go up the escalator and have ticket takers on each floor check tickets for that set of theatres. In tomorrow's issue, WebSkulker will explain some advanced skulking to bypass these multiple ticket takers, as well as discuss the Kabuki theatre.
Many email reading programs let you choose a sound to be played over your computer speakers when new mail arrives. This site, suggested by Jr. Skulker Batteryman, contains about 40 short sound bites taken from movies, TV shows, and cartoons relating to the arrival of mail or a message. Click on the title of any of these files to listen to it. To download to your PC, move the mouse pointer over one of the files, press the right mouse button, and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" or similar option depending on your web browser. Then find the option in your email program to set this downloaded file as the "new mail" sound.
Batteryman actually suggested this site for a totally different reason: it is also the home for a shareware program called "Anymail" that lets you check multiple web-based free email boxes without having to go to each web site. Let's say you have two mailboxes at hotmail.com and three more at yahoo.com, or any of 70 free email sites that Anymail knows how to use. Download and install Anymail, add descriptions of these five accounts including your email address and password, and tell Anymail how often to check. It will then visit all those web sites in the background, log in to each with your name and password, and report back to you if it finds any new mail. Double click on any of the accounts in the Anymail display and it will bring you to that web-based mail page and log in for you, leaving you with the screen to see your mail.
The first link below describes the program; the second link is for downloading it.
Electronic Rainbow manufacturers and sells many electronic kits that jr. skulkers might want to build. The first link is the company home, the second has a frame on the left with a list of their kits; choose one and the details will appear at the right.
The third link is fun to play with even if you don't buy anything. They sell a series of "CB Sound Toys" that you connect to a CB radio to broadcast sound effects (does anyone still use CB radio?), but could probably be modified to connect to a phone line. Click on most of the names of these machines to hear the sound it makes.
"From its humble origins in the multimedia division of Autodesk, Inc, the Dancing Baby has been transformed into a virtual phenomenon. It all started in the Kinetix product Character Studio™, with a sample animation of an infant doing the Cha-cha. Since then the Dancing Baby has been embraced and customized by animators and graphics enthusiasts everywhere."
These three pages contain links to hundreds of videos in .avi format of the dancing baby. Click on any title and it will download and play on most systems. These files are very large and will take forever to download unless you have a fast Internet connection like a DSL line.
