OFF-TOPIC: Good bye DM - Welcome 2002 and the Euro
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:26 CET under 06 - Site News

First of all, I wish you: the friends, contributors, partners and readers of Pocket PC Writer.Net a peaceful happy new year and all the best for 2002. Let your/our dreams come true!

For us Europeans the year 2002 don't brings the new Pocket PC 2002s only but a complete new currency, the Euro = €. After 53 years of trust in and fun with the DM (Deutsche Mark), from tomorrow all people (expect UK, Denmark and Sweden) in the European Union have one mutual currency. Thank you DM, I will miss you - good luck Euro, I will trust you!

Also good luck for everybody who was visiting my site last year! Thanks a lot for all your input and looking forward to see you next year again healthy!

Cheers ~ Arne

TALK: New at PPCW.N, the Wireless Forum
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:19 CET under 06 - Site News

There are so many discussions about Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GSM and GPRS that Jerome Neuveglise from and got the great idea to launch a dedicated wireless forum. Because Jerome and me are both real wireless guys we are running this forum together, this makes sense as we combine so the ideas and thoughts of our visitors and ourselves

So Wireless Forums - Cut the Wires - is launched now at but Wireless Forums isn't just another Pocket PC forum, it's about the wireless world and provides you room for discussions about:

Wireless Technology
  • Bluetooth
  • Cellular
  • Wi-Fi
  • Phones
  • Pocket PCs
  • Other PDAs
  • Other Hardware

A lot of my thoughts or reviews generated great feedback from you; some of it is article related and still always welcome as a comment on the article, other things are more your thoughts. There a discussion forum might be the better place - now you can share your opinions better and be able to discuss it.

Every time you see the link "Discuss @ Forum" in the foot line of an article, there is a dedicated topic on Wireless Forums which might give you additional thoughts of others.

Looking forward interesting discussion with you! :-)

Cheers ~ Arne

MySQL: Database problems on Pocket PC Writer.Net [UPDATE: 12.12.01]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:50 CET under 06 - Site News

Seems I have some problems with my database. Some articles, like the latest Ericsson 3G article have PHP error messages and I wonder if I’ve reached the storage limit!? Thank you for your patience I will try to figure out as soon as possible what’s going on there. Not affected are older articles!

Cheers ~ Arne

Jo, back in business! I had some problems with the caching functionality of my Web Log system I’m using. This caches pages by itself and therefore it wasn’t necessary for the system to access the SQL server all the time to get a page. However, this functionality is still Beta and died now. Therefore I disabled page caching (on the server side) and everything works fine again. Also I don’t see any differences on the performance...

Anyhow, glad to be back again and now I can work on my articles again, while I was investigating the performance problem only the whole day yesterday.

Cheers ~ Arne

PREVIEW: O2 XDA Wireless Pocket PC 2002 preview
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:30 CET under 06 - Site News

Thanks to VIAG Interkom (the German share of mmO2 - formerly known as BT Wireless), I had the chance to get my fingers for a lazy Sunday afternoon on a brand new XDA Wireless Pocket PC for an exclusive web preview including pictures and screenshots! Some stuff is still NDA, so please don't expect a full featured review but I'm glad to give you a first impression of this next coming "Uber Device" which will be a category of it's own!

So what's the O2 xda? Basically it's a mobile phone, or a Pocket PC? Well, it's both, it's a full featured Pocket PC 2002 and a full featured GSM mobile phone with GPRS.
