Flagpride around??

Hi all,
I have been trying to email support at flagpride for a week + now and their emails keep bouncing (to two different addresses).
Anybody else having a problem with them?

You've e-mailed Sales@FlagPride.com as well as filling out this form:

http://www.flagpride.com/support/tech.php

?

Emailed a response to an email to me from suppport@flagpride.com and then I tried the form on the web site and then tried service@flagpride.com.
None of these worked..have not tried sales yet, since it was a support question. Actually we have been communicating just fine over the past several weeks, has just been the past week I have been seeing bouncing emails.

I'm curious what conversation with them has generated "weeks" worth of e-mails.

Are you having a problem with FlagPride that we can help you with?

I spoke with Prolific about this about a couple of weeks ago. Neither they nor I have ever been able to reproduce this. There would not seem to be any basis for this to happen, since we just read the clock, not write to it. It's like your wristwatch -- it doesn't slow down no matter how many times a day you look at it. If anyone has any ideas on what could possibly be the problem here, we are open to suggestions.

Here are a couple of possibilities based on the Theory of Relativity:

Maybe he types very close to the speed of light, which would cause the system clock to appear to run slower.

Maybe he is extremely large and dense, generating a very strong gravitational field, which would slow time in his general vicinity.

Actually, I'm only 70 kg...so no prob there...and my typing is only one quarter light speed...so prob not related....
microsoft seems to know the problem well
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;189706

If you look at the above link, the 3rd symptom
and then look under the 2nd cause, I think that might give some insight....
bottom line, we can blame it on microsoft.

Anyway, my emails are still bouncing...I sent one today to sales@flagpride.com and it also bounced....maybe they think I'm spamming them.....

Do you have MA2 or MAT and do you lose time on them also? They use almost the same code but if there is no problem on MA2 or MAT, we can check for differences to fix the problem.

Flagpride is not my scene, so I tend to bypass threads about it. - But I happened to notice this about the clock!

For what it's worth, I have noticed considerable slow down of the clock on a number of occasions in the past. I can't give specific examples, it's just been during long spells of beta testing the various aquariums, or when one has been left on for a very long time.

Sorry I can't be specific, perhaps I should have reported it at the time! ......... but I can confirm it does happen!

In response to Edgar...good thought...I do have MA2 and just compared the two.
1)Ran Flags of the World for 20 minutes and lost 2 min and 39 sec off the clock.
2)Ran MA 2 for 20 min and lost no time.

So, there is something different there.

BTW am running W98se on AMD 1.0 GHZ with 256 MB RAM
DirectX 8.1 and updated drivers on nVidia TNT2 card.

thanks for all the responses....
