New FILA Guestbook
After nine months of struggles
with the company that ran the FILA guestbook,
HERE IS OUR NEW GUESTBOOK.
If you wonder what happened to
the old guestbook and all those messages, please scroll
down and read on.
The NetGuestbook Saga
Our guestbook, run by www.netguestbook.com, stopped working
in June 2015.
We couldn't even get into the administration
area of our guestbook account. It just didn't seem to
exist any more. All we got were error messages, and
very useful ones:
No kidding! It's great to know how extremely quickly
this message was generated in view of the fact
the guestbook has been out of order since
And the 16 digits after the decimal
point are very im-
pressive, aren't they?
that's what we call professional quality!
the way, the time in milliseconds mentioned in the message
box displayed above is chemically pure humbuggery.
period of time, a single digital bit inside
a computer travels only
a tiny fraction of a nanometer,
i.e. it barely starts to move. The
atomic clocks are not even remotely able to measure
such ultra-minute amounts of time.
So far, about 22 complaints in written
form and in several languages have remained unanswered.
We even filed a complaint with their Abuse Department
(!), letting them know that we feel sort of abused by
their way of handling, or rather NOT handling, the problem.
No reaction there either.
After some research, we also emailed
the guy that had the Internet domain registered for
that company some 14 years ago and still owns it. Again,
The domain is owned by one Jürgen
Riedel in Stuttgart, Germany, who runs several small
company Websites like www.suedwestmedia.de,
and various other sites, some of which do not work at
all and none of them provides a usable contact address.
All these problems would not be that
bad if, at the very least, it were possible to extract
the several hundred former guestbook entries so we could
use them for our new guestbook. However, since we cannot
access the administration of the old guestbook account,
there's no way.
Meanwhile, we have made an all new guestbook, located
on the servers that host our entire FILA Website.
Besides that, of course, you can always
contact us by phone and email.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
