New Server Coming Soon
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:35 CET under Off Topic

Okay, I definitely need to upgrade my server and today I "bought" (or better rent) a new one. Not too much to say now beside it's currently initialized and should be up and running soon to be configured.
The whole configuration process will takes some more days (have to install PHP, MySQL, have to move all current databases and files to the new machine and plan to clean-up some code first - anyone want to help?) before I switch the currently connected domains to the new server but everything is on the way now. :-)

I haven't checked my Spam E-Mail account for the past 5 months but now I'm downloading the spam to free the E-Mail account and to check if anything worth went into the wrong box (so far not a single message):

And yes - that's just the plain messages without any attachments. With attachments it's 80 MB! 8-O But anyway - it's still time consuming to get rid of the spam mails:

Site Outages Yesterday Evening
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:07 CET under Off Topic

Well, you might have noticed some site outages yesterday evening between 20 and 22 o'clock (CET); right? I'm really sorry but thanks to the Palm Folio news, which Google News grabbed immediately from the::unwired which Google News listed until this morning as one of the top 5 links about this topic - I had up to 300 - 400 unique visitors per minute on the web server yesterday evening. This was definitely way too much for my 3 years old web server. Maybe it's time to upgrade to a new machine?

Who Calculated these UMTS Tariffs?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:08 CET under Wireless - Mobile Networks

It's not a secret that the carrier of my choice is O2 (Germany). Maybe it's because its innovative Genion product, maybe it's because I worked for O2's forerunner VIAG Interkom for 3 years, maybe it's just because I like the whole brand.
Anyway, as happy as I'm with O2 (Germany), as frustrated I was with O2's data tariffs. Even in the past, when I was the responsible product manager for VIAG Interkom's WAP service, I had some hard fights with Controlling to get the WAP tariffs in the Homezone reduced and it took ages until O2 reduced their GPRS and UMTS tariffs earlier this year. Therefore I signed a 24 month contract back in 2005 with E-Plus (another German GSM & UMTS carrier) for one simple reason: E-Plus was the first carrier in Germany which offered a true GPRS & UMTS flat rate. However, signing a second contract means you get a second SIM card and so on. I prefer to have everything under one contract especially because O2 offers a service called "MultiCard" which gives you up to 3 SIM cards under one mobile number (without any additional monthly fees). This means you can use one SIM in your mobile phone, one SIM in your Pocket PC and one SIM in your Notebook. While only one SIM gets incoming calls, all 3 SIM cards can be used for outgoing calls (but not in parallel) and - this is even more important - all the SIM cards can be used in parallel for data connections!
This means I can send a MMS from my mobile phone while I surf the O2 WAP pages the same time while I still stay connected with my Notebook to O2's UMTS network. That's indeed pretty handy and smart!

Hey You - Get a new Madonna Song for Free!
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:06 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

Right, you can get Madonna's latest (so far unreleased) song "Hey You" for free and no - I'm not talking about any P2P networks. Inspired by Live Earth - The Concerts For A Climate In Crisis, Madonna has written a new song titled "Hey You," which is available exclusively on MSN, free of charge, for seven days. "Hey You" was produced by Pharrell Williams and Madonna and recorded in London. Madonna will perform "Hey You" as one of the headliners for Live Earth U.K., joining the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Genesis, the Beastie Boys and other performers at Wembley Stadium in London on July 7, as part of the 24-hour, seven-continent Live Earth concert series.

As the exclusive online destination for Live Earth, MSN is pleased to offer this song in conjunction with Madonna and is proud to donate 25 Cents for each of the first 1 million downloads to the Alliance for Climate Protection, in support of Live Earth. The download is available in WMA (for Windows Mobiles and Zune player ;-)) and MP3 (for iPods and other devices ;-)). Want to prelisten before you download it - no problem - click here.
