issue WebSkulker mentioned a weird
and mysterious web site http://www.superbad.com.
Jr. Skulker Paul Nes found out some more information. These
two pages appear to be indexes to the other pages:

In our 9/22/99 issue WebSkulker mentioned a site that will test the speed of an Internet connection. Jr. Skulker Tristan Tom told us about another speed test that is more flexible because it lets you choose the size of the test file: http://speedtest.mybc.com . Choose a small file if you are on a dialup line or if you want to see the effect of turnaround time on a high speed line. Choose one of the larger files for a DSL line or cable modem.
WebSkulker used a shareware program called "RadFind" for a couple of years on all of his Windows 95 and 98 machines. It would have been one of the first things he mentioned in the newsletter if it weren't for the fact that the developer of RadFind disappeared and no longer supported it. At last we found a new program that does the same thing, with a lot more bells and whistles.
File Tracer is a program that searches your hard drive for all files whose names match any specifications and wildcards you wish. Big deal, you say, anyone can do the same thing by Start / Find / Files or Folders. True, but the difference is speed, especially if you need to search the entire drive, or all of the folders under the Windows hierarchy. The built-in Find command must look through every possible file every time you ask it to do a search, and this can take several minutes.
File Tracer does these same searches in a fraction of a second because it builds an index of all the files on your drive the first time you run it, and it has hooks into the operating system so that every time a file is created, renamed, or deleted, it will immediately update its index. File Tracer is aware of abnormal shutdowns and will automatically rebuilt the index on the next boot.
WebSkulker urges all of you jr. skulkers to go to the File Tracer site and read the details.
From time to time jr. skulkers have sent us news reports about a payphone in the middle of nowhere in the Mojave Desert in California. WebSkulker didn't realize that this had become such a cult object until Jr. Skulker Frank Wilsey submitted the first site above. WebSkulker did some skulking and found the second two sites.
Jr. Skulker NoReality submitted this site "for all the people who drew stick people on their high school notebooks, college exams, etc." See stick figures brought to life, and more importantly death, through the magic of Flash animation.
