Right-click your mouse in the thread you want to link, then click properties, there'll be a http:// url, highlight it and copy/paste. Dance.

Lol, or even more simply, I've just noticed at the very bottom of the scroll bar there's a "Link to this thread: x" thingy.

As Petrozzi has mentioned, the URL for the thread can be gotten from the bottom of the thread in question. However to link to a specific post in a thread you need to use a URL of the form:

http://www.uk-learning.net/t14283.html#post109196

Where the 'http://www.uk-learning.net/t14283.html' part is the URL which links to the thread in question and you should substitute 109196 for the post ID of the post in question. This can be found by hovering your mouse over the 'reply' button for that post (not the 'post reply' button at the bottom) and looking at the URL displayed in your status bar. It should be of the form 'http://www.uk-learning.net/newreply.php&do=newreply&p=10925 2'. It's the 109252 number, which is the post ID.

I hope this helps,

When it comes to Americanisms, yes. They are a parasite on the English language, an incredibly large parasite.

Maybe, however 'gotten' is a valid past participle of the verb 'to get'.

Yes, but used mostly and invented by Americans. Before there was no past participle of 'to get'.

It would have been better to use 'can be obtained'.

However, then you realise he's at one of the best institutions for Computer Science in the world, and that sitting arguing over grammar and semantics is dull (an americanism in itself).

Not the most invigorating of debates, I'll grant you.

A lot of things you use on a day-to-day basis are 'used mostly and invented by Americans'. What's your point?

That whilst the Americans are good at many things, language isn't one of them.
