    I know exactly what you are talking about with the "message board thingies". The link that Ms. Mittens provided has the same type of message board (only with a different character) that I've seen used by an AntiOnline user when they are posting to a thread here. I tried to find one of their posts . . . but since I was looking for one . . . I couldn't find one to save my life (Murphy's law).

    I've often wondered myself how this is accomplished. Maybe someone will actually answer your question . . . or provide a link for reference . . . then we'll both know. Good luck in your quest!

    All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    These links might provide some insight into the how. The 2nd one shows how they created their "own" variation.

    I thought there was a way to find out what OS you are running? Well when you go to a web site that requires you to be running a OS like windows, can't you tell that person go there and that will be one way to find out. But also if you need to load any Java or script on a computer don't the web site need to know what OS you are running? I know this is off the subject but I just think there got to be a way to find out!

    He could've probably sent him to a website which logged his OS, or somehow, got his IP and found out his TTL. or as was later mentioned a trojan could've been installed.
