I have discovered that I have not been getting all the messages posted to the newsgroup. If you have noticed, there are two ways to access the newsgroup (vbulletin and dnewsweb). you can also use Outlook Express, which is what I use. I have not been getting the messages posted to vbulletin. The problem has been fixed so I should be getting new messages. I'll try to respond to the questions I missed as soon as I can.
