I've got asked by some of you what’s with the Audiovox GPRS CF Card review and I just got an answer form Audiovox:

Hey Arne,
My sincerest apologies. Our shipment was delayed from the east, and it should be arriving in our warehouse by the end of the week. We should then be in a position to get one out to you the soonest.

So I hope to get the card as soon as possible to be reviewed here for sure shortly after it

PPCW.NET: Back in Town - back on Duty
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:11 CET under 06 - Site News

You may wonder why there wasn't any news the past days; well it was because a spontaneous trip to Italy. I was in Tuscany and Rome for some days and visited my fellow MVP Giorgio Cifani in northern Italy where I also met my fellow MVP Marlof Bregonje. We had a great day yesterday at Giorgio's house with a very tasty BBQ and for sure some Pocket PC discussions... ;-)

Beside this I've also tested my GPRS enabled Omnitel SIM card (you may remember the success less trial in June) and this time it worked great - more or less. But I will cover this with a separate column later.

In Tuscany I've visited Siena (a really nice Gothic city where I will upload two Today Themes later too with pictures I made there) and in Rome I've seen the Pope in the Vatican. Okay, I'm a Protestant so I'm not related to the Catholic Church but it's always interesting to see someone like the Pope face to face.

Wow, what a great success of PPCW.Net! Yesterday night the 1200th user subscribed to PPCW.Net Wireless – Mazingo. :-) Thanks for it anonymous (unfortunately I don’t know the subscriber names…)

What makes me wonder is that more than 90 % of you subscribed to the Full channel and not the Lite channel. But it’s okay - personally I also prefer the Full channel.

If you aren’t a Mazingo subscriber today, subscribe here for free or if you are already a Mazingo customer but haven’t added PPCW.Net to your account you can do it with the buttons from the upper right box!

PPCW.NET: Lack of news today because of heavy PHP/MySQL coding
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:18 CET under 06 - Site News

Don't expect any news today. Yesterday evening I've decided to redesign/redevelop the Wireless Edition of PPCW.Net ( Which means for me as a non-developer taking the code from my existing Content Management System/MySQL database and trying to understand. After I got the meanings of the database (well, understanding a database shouldn't be the big deal ;-) I've entered the world of PHP again...
This is even harder but I'm on a good way I think. I will completely redesign/reedit PPCW.Net Wireless (thanks to Calin Brandabur for giving me some hints if I don't know how to do what I want to do ;-) and yes - the first result looks pretty promising, at least for me:

What I try to improve now is the availability of articles - not like in the past where you get access to the latest 10 stories only. At least
