Now it does. I haven't a clue what that double dutch means, but I think there was a server problem with the site when I tried to access it. ;-)
This site is a little nicer:

Server problems
We are sorry.
We do have a momentary problem with an server.
We work with high speed (lit. high preasure) to solve that problem.
This website can come op by itself again (?) (Don't know what "snarest" means :-)
Thank you for your patience.
Thanks!
It's no longer GMT, it's UT now :-)

Seems as if you may have referred to babelfish or similar.

"snarest" is probably double dutch for "asap" and means Soon Now, Any Realistic Estimate (of) Snafu Time? -- SNAREST. The kids in the back seat say "Are we there yet, are we there yet?" and dad says "snarest".
I suspect "op" is "up", possibly mistranslated by Unicode (UTF-7 or UTF-8) or Windows (ISO)

You are welcome. It's kinda neat, showing the terminator without Arnie Schwarzenegger starring in it, but unfortunately it is geared to the geocentric universe, the sun is shown going around the Earth. At least the yankew .gov bureaucrats put England, the first state, in a central position even if they got their physics wrong and joined Einstein's Flat Earth Society.

"snarest" means "as soon as possible" (one of several ways to write that in Danish, could also be "hurtigst muligt")

No, I did it out of hand, and it's not Dutch ... 'cause I speak Dutch, it's Danish.
I am willing to accept the rest of your post as a somewhat strange way to say "thank you"... Ok, you are welcome. C.

The Yanks like a Danish. All their food seems to come from somewhere else for some reason. Danish pastries, English muffins, Italian bread, German sausage, Swiss cheese, Scotch whisky....although bagels seem to be just bagels and pizza is just pizza. Even their courgettes are zuccini. It's kosher, though. Androcles

Danish is double dutch, isn't it? Anyway, it's all greek to me.
BTW, snipping is the equivalent of throwing the chess board in the air when you see checkmate is inevitable. Rather graceless, witless, stupid and you lose anyway. Androcles

Show me a relativist that isn't. Humpty Roberts does it, Babbling Baez does it.

No Mr. Androcles, you lost.

P.S.: You have a rather strange way to say !thank you!

What the fu*k is a "relativist"? Someone who speaks more than one language? Or someone who lived in more than one town/county/country?

A relativist is one who supposedly believes in the "religion" of Special or General Relativity [*], usually applied by a person who does not believe in the experiments which substantiate Special or General Relativity, and the specifications derived from calculations therefrom, e.g., Global Positioning Satellites, the Large Hadron Collider, and various astronomical assumptions based on the theory.
In short, many of are SRians/relativists. Androcles aka "The Sorcerer" is not.
This is not to say SR and GTR are cast in stone. It's a good working assumption, however, and has been for many years.

is a commentary on some of the tests that GTR has thus far passed.
[followups to sci.physics]
[*] it is worth noting that GTR includes SR as a special case.

Your newsreader (and your own memory) should be able to tell you what previous posts there have been in a thread.
There is no need for a single posting to carry the whole weight of a 20 or more deep nesting of replies. How does that baggage help anyone?
Snipping is the way to go for clarity. (Assuming you want your post to be clear.) GNKSA should help you out with some guidelines in case you need them.
