Is it just me, or does this site open with a blank, white screen click here except for the links to sign in etc. at the top right?

Firefox goes straight in but IE8 doesn`t, which seems a bit strange.

Do I need a Windows Live ID or something?

Both I.E and Firefox go straight in for me - and even clicking on your link I do not get a white screen.

I think it must be me, then.

I`m getting idsvc in Event Viewer so I`m guessing I must have made a half-hearted attempt to sign up for a Wndows Live ID, but then changed my mind but the ID service thingy must still be active ... damn!

To answer your query about "Do I need a Windows Live ID or something" - the answer is YES.

If you have the links to sign in on the screen you are getting (top right) you need to select "Sign in to Forums" where you can SIGN UP.
