Last major update before PLASMA online V2.0 will be online. Transition might take a month so NO online help until February.
Then most pages are redesigned in PHP3 with new database in the back. Old pages will still be available.

The horror became reality. Someone changed my index.html and so all Scripts ran into a black hole...
Without notification on my mobile I'd never realized that before Monday, August 27th. Grrrrr... As password and other things
are unchanged I believe this to be failure of my provider. That would be the second major one within last 4 months.

Resubmitted site last days to all major search engines. Looks like Google kicked most of the pages due to the temporary unavailability. First reactions: Back in Yahoo directory and Altavista.
FCC ID page recreated to implement script changes.
Replaced misleading ID naming in navigation bar. New search category ID by type is available and will be successor of former ID by manufacturer. ID by manufacturer isn't 'under construction' anymore.

Problems with my provider are larger than expected. Web server is up again but access time is horrible...
Search engines have downgraded my rating extremely. Last week of March nearly 1400 visitors per day, first week of April only 700 per day and falling. Last results show poor 200 a day... I hate that.
Anyway. Here are artwork pictures by chip designers which they printed on the chip die itself.
Many new pictures. intel, ALi, SiS, 3Com, Broadcom and many more.

Massive server problems last three days. Provider had file server break down and no recovery concept !
Should be fixed by April 01. Many mainboards added including BIOS ID and short description of board layout.
Micron Copperhead, nVIDIA GeForce 3 and much more added.
CeBIT news are always good news. So I got many new pictures and infos.

Last update before my next week in the US. Philadelphia, New York and Washington. For this time online help will not be available.
08 Feb 2001
One week in the snow. And although I wrote on the help page that no help will be available I received many requests. All will be answered as soon as I'm back.
First layouts for ASP are ready. Database will be filled the next months. I hope migration won't take long.

Thanks to Mike from IC Book ! Received many chip pictures.
And sure Mike: You'll get the mug of beer !
