I'm really sorry about this all.

The technical problem was: The cgi script referenced in the html page was
still referring to the wrong location (the one which I tested at home). I
fixed this and it is (hopefully :-) working now.

The other problem: I'm not the fatman administrator and don't have root
access. These (really offensive) messages were installed by the admin. I
don't like these either and have contacted him today and asked if they
could be replaced.

Please excuse this incident, I'll see what I can change.
