Freehosting on pipni.cz

For some time, I've been using free vserver hosting on pipni.cz for phpMyAdmin demos. It had always so much troubles, so I decided to move that to my own server. As I don't want to drop it completely as it might be useful for some testing, I placed there mirrors of arch.cihar.com and dl.cihar.com under names arch2.cihar.com and dl2.cihar.com under hope that they will be available at least sometimes.

But I was wrong. Server doesn't autostart anymore and after starting it survives around 1 day, so it is not usable at all. I know it is free service, however I thought they offer it as advertisement for more expensive services they offer. I doubt this way will attract anybody…

Phone database links to FoneWiki.org

FoneWiki.org is great wiki for sharing user experiences with phones. You can find there information about phones which are usually not provided by manufacturers as various usage hints.

As I think this might be interesting for more Gammu users, I decided to add links in Gammu phone database, which will point to FoneWiki.org pages. Linking is done by phone name, so it does not have to be always working, but works at least for some phones :-).

Cute URIs for phone database

I just activated some rewriting for Gammu phone database, so that URIs are now more user and search engine friendly. This also fixed navigation in top of page. If you find any problems with this change, please contact me.

It looks like searching was not working since transfer to new server. There was problem in SQL used as one field now became keyword. I fixed this, so you can again search phone instead of browsing whole database.

GoogleBot getting crazy?

I just noticed that GoogleBot already downloaded 1 GiB from archzoom. As there is nothing new on this server, it might be quite conservative about downloading. Maybe they decided there must be something really important :-)

I often heard complains about MSNBot, but this time it got just 160 MiB, so it looks like we have another evil bot.

Website transfered and cleaned up

Main website has been finally transfered to new server. Please be patient while things settle down, as something might be missing. If you miss something or something is broken, please contact me ASAP.

On this occassion I also removed obsolete stuff. This mostly consists of various stuff from my university studies and some photos.

PackTest lives

When I recently found one of forgotten old childs living in dark side of internet hidden under tons of advertisements, I decided to move it back to my server. This step doesn't mean revival of that testing, I just don't want to be connected with that site full of ads :-). So it doesn't really live.

Now I decided that it maybe deserves own domain. So if you want to see what I did more than six years ago, visit packtest.cihar.com.
