Yep, and it doesn't work. Face it, the link doesn't work from within a
browser, or isn't supposed to. If it does it's only because the browser
*isn't* recognized as a browser. Think about it: "direct linking not
allowed". What does that mean to you?
The whole point is, nobody is "lying" about the link not working; it
doesn't work for browser usenet readers. OTOH, the link is not broken
or a fake, it really is there if you can figure it out.

Well, I didn't say anything about lying, but I did get my train of thought
sidetracked into which browser was being used. I guess I just couldn't
comprehend anyone using anything but a dedicated newsreader for usenet.
My main point is what I said before, "get a non-lame usenet program; there
are lots of them out there, and free, too." I use tBird for e-mail and
Firefox for a browser, but I wouldn't think of using them for usenet when
things like 40tude Dialog (and two or three others) are free.
Does that stuff work with Google groups? Not practically, as far as I
can tell. Google has its own advantages- zero footprint and the entire
group history is archived and instantly searchable.
The problem is not with the usenet reader, it has to do with the
limitations of the site hosting the picture- no html links.
As you probably know, Google has its own set of problems, whatever its
advantages. For instance, in another group I read, there's a guy who
likes to use Google's "delete message" feature to edit his postings.
Within Google, all looks to be well. However, anyone using a NNTP-based
client to read the newsgroup sees all the "deleted" messages, since not
many news hosts honor cancel requests.
I still can't see why someone would want to use a web-based host to read
and post to newsgroups: slow and cumbersome. But that's just me. (I use
Thunderbird, which is very adequate.)

Links work from Thunderbird IME. If they're highlighted, they work, ie,
Moz starts, and does its thing. If the link doesn't work, the failure is
in the browser, not in the Usenet reader, as I understand it.
If you're using a firewall, you may have to fiddle with the privacy
settings for some websites to work properly. Zone Alarm, for example, is
paranoid about allowing a website to open a window.
Some ISPs will not relay (pass on) a request for a link to some
websites, for security reasons, and some websites will refuse a request
from some ISPs, for the same reasons. (This can also happen with
e-mail.) IOW, a link may not work for a number of reasons.

Thanks for the compliment, Ken.

I'm dragging the thing outside next weekend to have some photos taken
for a magazine article. I'll post some of them when they're ready.
All the best,
Hey Flynn.... let's something straight right now:
A person DOES NOT need to use NMRA track standards, nor do they need to
scratch built turnouts in order to participate in this forum.
Do you understand that?
All the NMRA H0 track and wheel standards uses a larger check gauge
compared to RTR H0 wheels and track. That makes them unimportant for
the majority of H0 modellers. If you use the NMRA check gauge on RTR
track you get at best bumpy operation, at worst a derailment.
The tight tolerances required for the NMRA proto87 standard is
impractical if building complex track work.
The NMRA RP on car weight results in trains that are to heavy, and it
is impractical to weight many models to this RP. It is also bad advice
as the formula they use does not result in consistent weight per length
of car, which is the best result if you want to run long trains. The
NMRA RP results in maximum length trains up to 40% shorter. Se my web
page for superior H0 alternatives.
Some RP's from the past the NMRA would like to forget, the X2F coupler
comes to mind. There current coupler and coupler box RP is unimportant,
because Kadee provide a better solution.
One NMRA RP I like is about minimum radius.
