Thanks friends for all your E-Mails but I can allay you, nothing dramatic happened! The reason for the maintenance is pretty easy -> the move to the new and necessary server. I'm migrating from a shared server package to a dedicated server.
This means uploading ~ 10 GB of data to the new server (hell, I never imagined that I made so many pictures and screenshots in the pas 12 months) and migrating from the old MySQL database to the new one. Thankfully I have a DSL flat access here with 1024/256 KBit/s. Doing this stuff with slower DSL connections or even ISDN sounds impossible for me right now.
Unfortunately all this stuff needs longer than I though first so I don't think I will bring PPCW.Net back to life today or tonight but latest tomorrow - I'm sure!
Cheers ~ Arne
