> BUMP - sorry to BUMP but we really need some-one :s
To respond to your plea for help in a little bit nicer way than Mr. Snidley
W. did (although in essence he is quite right) -
You think you are posting to a forum but you aren't. It is just a web
interface that leeches Usenet newsgroup posts. Since the rest of us are
using real newsreaders to access Usenet directly, we don't see what you do.
We've never been to that "forum" and all we see is an orphaned "BUMP" post.
So we have no idea to what you are referring and therefore can't help you.
Post back with a full description of your problem, your computer, and what
you've already done. The links under "How to Post" below will show you what
details to include. And here is standard information about setting up a
newsreader (very easy to do).
Since you are using the 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:
