BUSY DAYS: Argh, our day has 24 hours only
Posted by Arne Hess - at 00:30 CET under 06 - Site News

As you might have seen, the update frequency of PPCW.Net is low again and let me explain why Carlo and I are not that active right now: Carlo got some great orders (you might remember that he is a professional photographer in the Philippines and therefore he is also working for Smart and made the Smartphone photos for them). Right now he is doing some great stuff for the Pocket PC development in the Philippines as well as he has a regular job.

I for myself still working for a European carrier (on some UMTS stuff and more, nothing I'm allowed to talk about) which isn't the problem at all since I'm working for them 14+ hours only. But in my spare time, where I'm normally working on PPCW.Net I'm currently working on my 4th Pocket PC book (thanks Microsoft for such a update frequency which allows me to write one Pocket PC book per year) as well as I'm working with Calin on some great PPCW.Net changes you will notice later next months.

UPDATE: Spam protection implemented and working well
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:07 CET under 06 - Site News

You might remember my previous posting about spam in the PPCW.Net comments which continued during the last days and even increased. Therefore yesterday I had to remove around 80 comments, full of crap! 8O
As you guys said in the comments before, I shouldn't give up nor I should make the comments a closed system but hey, how worthy would PPCW.Net and the comments section become if it is flooded with 5 - 10 spam comments per article? Would you continues to enjoy PPCW.Net with all the dumb links, not to mention that these kind of links would give these idiots better Google ranking, etc?

PAIN: How sick are Spammer?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:03 CET under 06 - Site News

You now my opinion about spammer, they waste my time because I have to delete their mails I've never read, they waste my money because I'm downloading their useless E-Mails through GPRS (in worst case while in international roaming) and now, this sick spammers entered the next stage of sickness: comment spamming.

During the day, I don't now, they've added around 15 - 20 spam comments here at PPCW.Net - all of them with the same useles links:

CELEBRATION: Happy Birthday Carlo
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:22 CET under 06 - Site News

If Outlook isn't fooling me (and it happened before...), today is Carlo's day, our fellow PPCW.Net editor and my fellow MVP and friend since today is Carlo's birthday! :-)

I wish you all the best, health, luck and whatever you wish yourself!

Stay as you are (well, don't think you will change anything anyway - due to your age ;-)).
