01/03/07: As I receive since quite a while every week several dozens of fake awards applications, it was always difficult for my spam filter to separate the real ones from the fake applications. To make live difficult for spamers I've added now a captcha to the application form. By that an application can only be submitted if the security code of the captcha is correctly entered. Additional the applicants will now receive immediately a confirmation mail. Hope it helps.

10/20/02: Attention: In the moment my guestbook is down.

I asked my provider (Lycos) for support and I hope that it is back soon. Sorry for inconvenience.
11/12/02: Lycos is still working to solve the problem, I received nothing but 7-8 mails with the statement: "We're currently working on an issue that may be causing the problem you described. We hope to have it resolved very soon. Thank you for your patience."
11/25/02: No solution available from Lycos. I decided to put a new guestbook on my site. Please take your time, visit my new guestbook and fill it up again ! Thanks !!!
I like music and music is on each of my sites but I know that this is a matter of taste. On some pages the music is starting automatically, on most of them you may start the music if you want. You can do this very easily: Just right click on that symbol music.jpg which you'll find on the top of my sites, a menu will open - choose "stop", "play" or "pause" - that's all.
