Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:34 CET under Off Topic will be fined. Sure, it is not right to smoke in the trains of any subways and sure it is right to get fined if you do it anyway but who calculated the fine in Barcelona? 30.05 Euro is pretty wrily:

Packing my bags for 3GSM Congress in Barcelona
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:34 CET under Job - Editor and Journalist

Barcelona is the keyword, I always want to say Cannes and interesting enough I'm not the only one. :-) Most of the GSM insiders are still talking about Cannes like "see you in Cannes!" or "will you be in Cannes too?".
The reason for this is simple: for more than 15 years or so, the 3GSM Congress (in the early day it just was the GSM Congress) was in Cannes until it became too busy and expensive there. Therefore the GSMA moved it to Barcelona.

I think it's my 8th or 9th GSM Congress I'm attending and I'm leaving for tomorrow noon. While in the early days I was attending it as an employee when I was working for network operators and MVNOs (in Germany and UK better known as Service Providers), for some years now I'm attending it as a consultant, which I'm and for sure as a journalist, which I'm also - at least a kind of. My agenda is pretty mixed, some consultant related stuff, some journalist related stuff and plenty of time (this year I stay one day longer and will fly back on Thursday - my birthday ;-) - which is a good reason to leave and to be at home in the evening anyway) to roam through the conference and around the exhibition. So for sure you will find my personal 3GSM coverage here at the::unwired (in English) and over at digital living mobile (in German).

"Tekguru" and fellow MVP Daron Brewood just informed me, that due to server problems both, and are offline at this time and they do not know what is causing the problems, or how soon the sites will be back online.
They even might have to end up moving hosts and setting up again using backed up data. :-(

So if you notice HTTP errors if you try to access or which you get for sure, since the server is gone, don't be surprised. But for sure both will back soon.
