Saturday, 11.02.06 and are down but not gone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:52 CET under Off Topic

"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.

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI: Happy Chinese New Year
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:11 CET under Off Topic

I wish all my Chinese (speaking) readers a Happy Chinese New Year whether you are speaking Mandarin: "Gong Xi Fa Cai" or Cantonese: "Kung Hei Fat Choi"!

You may still wonder why I remember Chinese New Year as a "Gwailo"!? Pretty simple - because I lived and worked some years ago in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei when I was there for a trainee program. Because of that and because many of my friends and business contacts are Chinese, Chinese New Year is still part of my Outlook calendar like Western New Year is as well.

Yes, I was off for some days snowboarding
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:58 CET under Off Topic

If you wonder where I was during the past days when some exciting news made it to the public: spontaneously I was off for some days snowboarding in Austria.
And since the weather and conditions were that good:

I staid a day longer to enjoy snowboarding on perfect slopes (I know. it's not the most spectacular photo of me but the only one I have from the weekend):

CHEERS: Thank you for a successful year 2005 - have a good start into 2006
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:18 CET under Off Topic

You might have noticed my absence during the past days ;-) and you are right, I took off some days to spend the days between Christmas and New Year with my family and friends, but without my PC 8O but with my Smartphone only (for E-Mail access). ;-)
Nevertheless, before the year goes bye, I want to take the opportunity to wish you a happy new year, have a good start into 2006 - wherever you are.
For me, 2005 was a great one and I hope 2006 will continues as 2005 was. The transition from PPCW.Net to the::unwired went perfect, the readership of the::unwired nearly doubled (thanks to all of you, my dear readers) in 2005, the::unwired became part of Google's News Network, behind the scenes I'm/was working on some great ideas with partners, I was hired by CMP-WEKA as "Blogger #1" for the digital living blog which develops great as well, etc, etc. So all together, I'm more than satisfied with 2005 and I hope you had a nearly successful year as well. If not, I'm sure 2006 will become even better.

To b(uy) or not to b(uy)
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:07 CET under Off Topic

Thinking of buying a new Notebook I'm in the gadget-lover trap now. On one hand, I want/need a new one (want because my current one became two now and I need something newer and need for tax reasons) on the other hand I know next year Windows Vista will appears and to get the full Vista flavor in my hands, I'm sure the current Notebook hardware isn't ready for Vista yet (especially not the Centrino platform).

As Shakespeare's Hamlet said it quiet right, the question is and stays (until next year - I'm sure): "to b(uy) or not to b(uy)"?

Cheeers ~ Arne
