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:

Because the new - dedicated - server, it needs to change the DNS entries because a new, dedicated IP address. However, this means also that the Domain PPCW.Net isn't available because the Registrar have to update its DNS entries and spread the new DNS entries all over the world. I hope it works faster and more serious than we saw before on Jason's Pocket PC Thoughts but my provider told me that this should be fixed within the next 48 hours.

Anyway, even harder for me is the fact - I forgot - that also my E-Mail addresses are affected through this change means I'm not available for you guys. So please use the comments option of every story to add your thoughts to a story or use the "Contribute Story" formula above to send any news.

Stay online and let us wait and see what's going on.

Cheers ~ Arne

UPDATE: Since 4:00PM MET, PPCW.Net is reachable through and again :-) through this Domain only. The old domain names will be disconnected sooner or later, so please be so kind to update your bookmarks if you use any other URLs.
Now I have to finalize some migration stuff like the Wireless channel and the Mazingo channels. This could needs some additional days because I'm working here - as you know - with subdomains like This subdomains needs to be registered too but I'm working on it! :-)
The Forum still need some additional care and might be closed a little bit longer. However, we are reaching the finish line and some additional cool improvements will come soon too, stay tuned for some surprises... ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne

PS: Mail still doesn't work but I expect this during today too!

UPDATE:Finaly everything is migrated - or at least it looks like from my perspective... ;-)
This means my E-Mail accounts are back in works since yesterday evening and since this morning also the Wireless Edition ( with an automatic redirect from as well as the Mazingo channels should work proper again!
So please give me your feedback if you found any issues on PPCW.Net. Thanks!
Finally I come back to what this site is about - news, views, reviews and thoughts! It's hard if you have to handle such a site more or less alone as coder, webmaster and editor (anyone want to contribute also? ;-)...

Cheers ~ Arne

Welcome back dude! :-)
However, the site doesn't seems to load right. Looks like a kind of strange look. Even if it is loaded it try to still load? What's wrong?

@Anonymous: Yes, you are right. This was because a missconfiguration of the banner system which wasn't migrated also. However, now everything is okay - I think...
