That's sad.
It was a community I fondly remember.

All that would be necessary is a one-time work using a regular expression on the source: Search
Code:
(<a href="http://www\.mydellmini\.com/forum/)([^/]+/)([0-9]+)-(.*)(\.html")( target="_blank">)(.*)(</a><br />)
and replace with
Code:
\1showthread.php?t=\3\6\4\8
Links will look slightly less elegant, but the functionality is restored. Should be less loss of traffic than the current frustrating pseudolinks. The clickable text could be improved somewhat by replacing "-" with " " and applying Title Case.

No money, no time, no intern to torture, not enough coffee?


EDIT: the regex needs some refinement.
