of the email asked whether WebSkulker checked out the site himself
before publishing the item. The answer to any such question is "YES,
WEBSKULKER ALWAYS TRIES OUT EVERY SITE THOROUGHLY BEFORE EVEN THINKING
ABOUT MENTIONING IT!!!" WebSkulker knew
precisely what that site does, and knew that the site works precisely
as its author intended. WebSkulker had already looked up his own
picture and it was a remarkable likeness.
Jr. Skulker Andy wrote to us about the joke in yesterday's
issue: The joke's premise is that "It's common practice in England to ring a telephone by signaling extra voltage across one side of the two wire circuit and ground (earth in England)."
Andy says: "Not any more , it isn't -- that's the trouble with old jokes!
We used to do this for shared service lines, but for the last 30 years or so, electronic
'pair gain' technologies have been used. The joke still makes people laugh though.
In our 2/9/00
issue, WebSkulker mentioned that if you dial phone number:
above sites will teach you everything the jr. skulker needs to know
about Bluetooth, a new standard for wireless connections between
computers, peripherals, and handheld devices such as PDA's and smart
cell phones. "Bluetooth is a technology specification describing how various electronic products such as mobile phones, computers, and personal digital assistants (PDAs) can interconnect with each other using a short-range wireless connection. The wireless connection is established using a low-power radio link among the devices. The primary benefit of this technology is the elimination of proprietary cables which are currently required to connect devices for information synchronization.
It will probably be years before these devices are common, but this is an important new technology that you jr. skulkers should know about. The first link above is the home for the official organization. The second link is a Flash animation that is the quickest introduction to the concepts. The third link also has a lot of information and tutorials.
If your parents ever told you to stop bothering them and go skulk in the traffic, this site might help you. If your city is shown with a green dot on the map, then click on the dot and you will get a road map of the area with symbols showing all current accidents, construction zones, and anything else blocking traffic. Click on the symbol to get details and when it should be cleared up.
This site has some really funny cartoons in Flash animation. Assuming you have the right plug-in, the opening page has a menu of the 10 most requested for you to click on. To see more, move your mouse over each of the green segments of the centipede (or whatever that thing is) and click on the item you want.

A cute little old lady goes to the doctor and says, "Doctor I have this problem with gas, but it really doesn't bother me too much. They never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact I've farted at least 10 times since I've been here in your office. You didn't know I was farting because they don't smell and are silent."
The doctor says, "I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next week."
The next week the lady returns. "Doctor," she says, "I don't know what the heck you gave me, but now my farts, although still silent, stink terribly."
"Good," the doctor said. "Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's work on your hearing."
