If I go to the Binary newsgroups and there is a picture out there, it comes up in mozilla/linux.   If I go to mp3 groups in the binary catagory I get jibberish on the screen and  no sound.  I also setup a M$ box that had Media player on it and had the same experiance.

Shouldn't I get sound or the option to download?

There probably chunks of sound files. You should use a news reader that's able to recompose files from chunks.
The reason for that is that a single MP3 file is too big for a single news article.

PAN, for example, is one of these :

Search google for "news reader multipart binaries"

and you can add "linux" or "windows" to the search terms to narrow it.

Alf:

I thought is might be a software problem but when M$ did not do it right then I figured it must be me.  You pay 160 for the os and 500$ for office you would think they would work.  Pan under linux works fine.  M$ does not work.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Oh, I added some points because you did it so well.  I spend days on this and you answered it with five sentenses.

Oh great name: alf666.   You got any pea soup ?

Thanks. No big deal though. Just time and experience :-)

As a non English native speaker, I don't understand the pea-soup stuff ?

The classic american movie "the exsorsist" was about a little girl that was possessed by the devil.   You used ALF (also a classic american idol who had a TV show for years,  A long nosed space alien).  

You number is 666 which you know is the sign of the Devil.  In the exsorsist the little girl who was posesses of the devil through up pea soup all over the priest that was trying to remove the devil by an exsorsism.  ALF ( A space alian ) and 666 (I am the devil) was a really cute name. It is like saying I am a Possessed space alien so do not mess with me.

So are you a possesed space alian ?    http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/ShowMainServlet/showid-761/
