We use


to search. This looks like an older interface, that will at least give
you the search results in lynx, but when you click on one it still
requires javascript.

The newer interface is even javascriptier, it has that
annoying #! thing going on.


So, no, basically, no idea sorry.

You could try and find a free NNTP or NNRP server instead.
