Jr. Skulker Leonard Morris suggests Mediamazing for it's 28 channels of music programming and one comedy channel. You can specify as many channels as you like, and their player will randomly play you songs from the different categories. As each song (or comedy routine) is playing, you will see information about it and you can press the "Skip Song" button to go on to the next one if you don't like it.
Jr. Skulker Barry Rueger suggests Kerbango as a great front-end for listening to radio stations on the web. They have a database of over 5000 real-world and web-only stations that broadcast in RealAudio and Windows Media formats. You view the list by categories, or search for keywords. Click on the Play button on each entry to automatically launch the proper player.
One navigation tip about Kerbango: when you click on a major category from their home page, "Talk" for example, you will get a screen that lists only a small number of stations, which will make you think that their database is tiny. It turns out that these are their "Featured" stations that probably pay them money. To see the rest of the database for that category, click on one of the tiny green links just above the list of featured stations. If you like a station, you can associate it with one of the Preset buttons like a car radio.
Kerbango is also working on a
standalone box that looks and acts like a table radio, except that it
can connect to the Internet all by itself and play any of the stations
in the Kerbango database. Go here to see more details:
This site is in some respects an ad for the author's book Computer Privacy Handbook, but there is a lot of information on the site about how to protect your anonymity and privacy when dealing with email and web sites.
This item is mainly for jr. skulkers with high-speed Internet access because it involves a 12 Mb download, but if that doesn't bother you, this is pretty interesting. It is a complete manual including lots of color pictures in PDF format for the French Ariane 5 rocket that is used to launch satellites. The manual is for "users" of the system, but it isn't exactly clear who that might be; possibly companies that manufacture satellites and need to contract with a service to launch them.
Jr. Skulker Anthony Barbera suggested that we look at the web site for radio station 98 Rock FM in Baltimore, MD. Most of the site seems pretty boring for people who aren't fans of the station, but the link above goes to their Twisted Tunes page with a lot of funny sound files including parodies of songs, politicians, and commercials.
