I just want to let you know that some "interactive" parts of PPCW.Net are temporary disabled for maintenance. In detail it's the comments section as well as the Forum. All your previous comments are saved but not available right now as well as it is not possible to post new comments. Also the Forum isn't available but both will be back latest on Monday!

DNS: The Domain move started and PPCW.Net became unreachable [UPDATE: 06.11.02]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:24 CET under 06 - Site News

If you can read this, you came here through any other URL than "PPCW.Net". Maybe you've used the former one "Unwired-I.Net" or "PocketPCWriter.Net" - right? ;-)
Well, the good stuff is that PPCW.Net is still reachable through this URLs, the bad news is that PPCW.Net isn't reachable through its main domain PPCW.Net. :-(

The reason here fore is pretty easy and hope to get it fixed soon:

Now I've decided to install Office 11 Beta 1 and I thought to myself that it might be a good idea to refresh the system in general. So far so good - going to and downloaded a DOS based boot disk for my PC to perform the legendary:

This worked fine so far and also I got my Windows XP CD-ROM started from a system without anything else than BIOS running.
