Well, eventually I got it to work, as long as I stopped it before it froze. The first couple of times I tried reading ascending order, of the 160 message Mother Of This Thread, the browser would quit and fly home to the system folder after I stopped it. Just had to stop it before it loaded too far. Glad I could get to the end, though, since there are lots of nice folks introducing themselves to the cafe.
Parts II, III, and if necessary IV, shorter than the first, would be nice!
