This url you're giving appears to be from one of those websites that scrapes
Usenet postings while purporting to be a forum (url changed slightly in
case this site is opening Bad Things on a Windows machine). The link you
gave me wouldn't open in Firefox under Linux, nor would the homepage of
Both links opened all right in Konqueror, but I'm not sure what the point is
of referencing this url anyway. Your post appears to be an original
question and not in response to someone else's.
Try asking your question properly based on the "How to Post" links below,
and consider using a real newsreader to post to Usenet. It is extremely
easy to set up and use. See below for general information about this.
Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
Here are some links to information about newsgroups:
