I was wondering if anyone on the board may have contact info for Mr. Volpe the author of ModemDoctor (http://www.modemdoctor.com). I attempted to send in the registration fee for his service based on the address on his website. The letter was returned "not deliverable". The site does get occasional updates so he is still around and apparently still accepting orders.

Thanks.

In case anyone else cares:

The P.O. Box he lists is no longer registered under his name per the USPS. All the old email addresses I could find for him seem to work (no bounced emails) but none of them have garnered a response. At this point it seems that the program is completely abandoned w/ no interest in it from the author/owner.

Did that already as well and even tried emailing that guy on the ABC email. No luck with either.

That's really odd because the page was updated as recently as 11/4 this year, as he added this link to the front page: http://www.engadget.com/2015/11/04/hilton-mc-dean-fcc-fine-wifi-blocking

VENDOR.TXT says "contact me via the BBS or e-mail. These addresses are included in the program.". Have you tried the email address in the program?

Trixter,

That is why it is so surprising. He is definitely around and updating the site.

I've dled the SW (all three versions) and could not find any addresses in them. I've also checked his travel clock program and comset utility as well. However, by doing Google searches and using TWBM I have found multiple addresses which he used to use to run the site/business. I've also tried his registrar e-mail address for the web site. And yes I even tried calling the BBS number just in case!

Frankly either none of my emails are getting through, which does happen at times with my host 1and1, and I am not getting bounce backs (although I also sent him email through a yahoo account with the same results) or he is just ignoring the mail. If you are interested I can send you all the addresses I located via PM and you can also try sending him an email to see if you have any better luck then I did.

Email him from a gmail account; I've never had an issue with gmail.com emails getting through to people. (I have had issue sending and receiving from yahoo)

Sent the message again. Nothing bounced back on the Google account either. So the accounts are working or the server is just not sending bounce back replies. Or they are lost in spam hail. I'll update later in the day.

So message sent through Gmail as well and so far no bounce backs and no response...
