Yep, it works over here, and welcome. Just be prepared, this is a totally
unmoderated forum and anything goes. Before long I am sure you will
be learning how to use your filters in Outlook.

Yup, your killfile is your friend. ;-)

In any case, welcome! Tell us about your collection!

Welcome to RCC!

Since you're using Outlook Express, there's a few things you'll want to
familiarize yourself when posting to Usenet:

1) The preferred posting style for Usenet is plain text. Go to Tools >
Options, Send tab, and at the bottom where it says "News Sending
Format", choose "Plain Text".

2) Make sure your security is cranked up. Tools > Options, Security tab,
and choose the "Restricted Sites Zone" under the section confusingly
labeled "Virus Protection" (confusing because the security zone has
almost nothing to do with protection from viruses).

3) As K6AZ mentioned, RCC is totally unmoderated. There's no one out
there enforcing any sort of posting standard, so if you've got sensitive
ears, be forewarned. Kill filters are your friend -- if a poster
continually annoys you, open one of his messages, right-click on his
name, and choose "Block Sender". You won't see his posts again. If an
entire thread becomes annoying, choose Message > Ignore Conversation.
For this to work, you need to hide ignored messaged -- I usually choose
View > Current View > Hide Read or Ignored Messages. That keeps my RCC
reading experience fairly clean.

4) The generally accepted style of replying to a message on Usenet is
known as "bottom posting" -- that is, quoted text on the top, your new
text on the bottom (with an optional signature all the way at the
bottom). The alternative -- "top posting" -- puts new text on the top,
and quoted text on the bottom. Holy wars have been fought over this, so
I'll say no more here...

5) You might want to check out the program OE-QuoteFix
(http://home.in.tum.de/~jain/software/oe-quotefix/) -- it's an add-on
for Outlook Express that adds a lot of nice neat features. Check out the
site and see if it's something you're interested in -- it's a free
program, so there's no harm in trying it.

Wow, that turned out longer than I expected... Such is the nature of
Usenet, I guess...

Yep.  I saw that.  And if the coin/silver round has nice luster, those who
knew no better would think freshly minted.  If it is a silver round, odds
are that it is not freshly minted, although the sellers may think so.  Bill
