OFF-DUTY: Sometimes it takes longer then estimated
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:50 CET under 06 - Site News

As you know from my previous posting I'm a little bit "knocked-out" because that small and not dangerous surgery I had Tuesday. Unfortunately it were (without going into to many details now ;-)) on a part of the body you used to sit on... ;-) (a "simple" skin thing only). However, as you can imagine it's not that funny to sit but currently I prefer to lie on the couch instead of sitting in front of my PC (was a fun ride anyway today from Frankfurt back to Munich - 3:30 hours in the car was simply enough for today).

OFF-DUTY: Away from PC for today and maybe tomorrow
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:54 CET under 06 - Site News

Well, I don't wanted to "announce" it here but I should because I recently received a lot of E-Mails and just want to make sure you understand why I'm not replying in time: I had a small surgery today and therefore I'm a little bit "knocked-out". :-( Hope I become better tomorrow to be back.

RAFFLE: PPCW.Net's great Christmas Raffle is starting today!
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:31 CET under 06 - Site News

Okay - I've thought about it for a long time but now it's a good time to announce it, especially because so many of you were annoyed because yesterday's PPCW.Net i-Mate Phone Edition was sold out that fast! :roll:

If you haven't had the chance to buy one - maybe you want to win a PPCW.Net i-Mate Smartphone, Smartphone2* or Phone Edition? :-D What do you think!? 8)

So please ladies and gentlemen - make your choice:

ABROAD: Checking in again
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:19 CET under 06 - Site News

Just want to let you guys know that I'm back "on duty" again. After a typical 18 hours trip I made it to my home 15 minutes ago.
Please let me have a coffee and a nap first, then I have to recheck my E-Mails and then I can take care about everybody. Also I have to write my articles about this trip to T.O. (or Toronto as we - outside T.O. say ;-)) and want to give you guys some background information of PowerLOC which developed the Destinator navigation system. So I had an exciting weekend there with great discussions - more to come soon.

But now I need the coffee first... ;-)

REACHABILITY: Serious E-Mail problems
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:31 CET under 06 - Site News

As I've earlier wrote, the server migration was finalized successful. However, I have some serious problems to get E-Mails you might wrote from the site (like contact forms).

So if I don't answer, it's not because I'm uninterested but because your E-Mail might never reached me. :-( Instead of using the contact forms please use the following E-Mail addresses:

DNS: PPCW.Net reachable through again and only
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:04 CET under 06 - Site News

Since today, the server move/upgrade I've started one month ago is done successful and also the domain name matches the server again! :-)
So from today, PPCW.Net is available via again and only - the IP address is disconnected from the web server soon so make sure to update all your bookmarks and favorites back to the original domain, just in case you've changed it to the IP or you are a new frequent visitor of PPCW.Net.

Here are the most important URLs for you to know:

DNS: PPCW.Net domain move to the new server
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:41 CET under 06 - Site News

If you see this message you might came here through the IP address of the server (; if you got an error message it's because today the DNS change of the domain from the old server to the new one started. I hope my provider can switch it ASAP but I'm expecting some problems during the next days anyway... :-(

Please stay tuned - in the past everything worked fine after at least 2 - 3 days.

SHOPPING: PPCW.Net Online Shop launched today
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:27 CET under 06 - Site News

Dear valuable PPCW.Net visitor! I'm proud to introduce PPCW.Net's latest project - the PPCW.Net Online Shop! :-D

Maybe you've noticed my absence during the past days which was because of heavy coding the shop (it's hosted on PPCW.Net), leagal checks but also because currently it's pretty silent in the Pocket PC, Smartphone and wireless world. So it was the right time to work on the shop.

There is still no intention to become an online shop at all; even if it helps to maintain the site; but mostly we believe into the Microsoft Windows Mobile platform! Since the availability of Microsoft Smartphones and Pocket PC Phone Editions around the world is still limited, we want to provide you with our reviews first hand experiences and with our hardware offer the chance to get your long awaiting Windows Mobile device.
With our first Smartphone sales promotion back in spring 2003, where we was one of the first independent shops world wide (if not the first) who introduced a Smartphone 2002, we had such a huge success and generated so much interest for the Windows Mobile platform that many loyal PPCW.Net readers and customers asked us if we will continue to sell the latest and greatest Windows Mobile hardware. Because of your feedback and requests we decided to continue to make the "impossible" possible - delivering the best available Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003 and Smartphone 2003 to the PPCW.Net community!

FORUM: Had to restore the Forum with a 5 days old backup
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:32 CET under 06 - Site News

For any reason, last night one table of the Forum database crashed (the topics table) and I had to restore the Forum with a previous backup. Unfortunately that backup is 5 days old so we lost the past 5 days... :cry:

While I first thought I just could restore the crashed topics table I realized after that i doesn't work because the matching between topics and postings wasn't accurate anymore. :roll:
