Only RC Groups know why a post I made from Google Groups ended up suspended here. I hate "walled gardens" that make up the rules as they go....

However, for the benefit of anyone reading through the RC Groups interface I'm after a Heenan Froude DPX0 dynamometer. A DPX1 might be ok

Thanks

Because bloody RC Groups leech the Usenet UKRME group feed and don't point out
very well that it's nothing to do with them :-(

It ain't "Google Groups" either. Usenet was in existence and in use literally
before the Internet and its protocols had been invented.

Interesting question of terminology; I thought that, originally, the
"internet" *was* usenet and a few other similar bits, plus e-mail
traffic between servers. Its the word-wide web, based on websites and
html (but still using the same infrastructure) that has virtually
superseded it - at least the usenet part.

Even get people sending me html marketing e-mails these days, much good
it does them as my reader, well, doesn't, and they get binned.

I'm with Mark on this. It really irritated me that RC Groups, on their external feeds, decided that I was "suspended". Stupid people. However they'll never read this since I'm posting from Google Groups and whatever I say won't appear on their website. However I sue Google Groups because it works behind the corporate firewall.

Anyway, back to Dynos please!

We've got a couple of Heenan Froude water-brake dynos at work, but they're
attached to a little 1000hp model air turbine. So I guess that the labs
wouldn't appreciate them going missing :-)

Likewise.

If I think I might want to look at the content, I do a 'search and
replace' on < and substitute (, then send it to the originator and ask
for them to re-snd in plain text...

Those 'engineered' from M$ Worm tend to b e rather full of useless code
- useless to sender and recipient, so I wonder what M$ gets back from it?

Didn't remember to reply to this bit..

Usenet originally used the UUCP (unix to unix copy) protocol. If you look at
the headers of a message you'll see things like:-

"Path:
border1.nntp.ams.giganews.com!nntp.giganews.com!ne ws.astraweb.com!border5.a.newsrouter.astraweb.com! newsfeed.eweka.nl!eweka.nl!feeder3.eweka.nl!69.16. 177.246.MISMATCH!cyclone03.ams2.highwinds-media.com!news.highwinds-media.com!voer-me.highwinds-media.com!npeersf03.am4!fx01.am4.POSTED!not-for-mail"


That's the path of servers through which the message flowed. The significant
part is the exclamation marks. These are the "bang addressing" that UUCP used.
This addressing form is used by usenet even in these days of TCP/IP and can
work equally well with servers talking to each other directly by modem (as it
was originally intended to do :-)
