Head over to the Neoflash pages for the full “NEO Spring Coding Contest” details and good luck!

Personal sidenote:
If hughe commercial companies keep on colliding with competitions organized by non commercial pages, this might be the last one from us – as I can not keep up on such a level. Personaly I found the announcement quite rude, as it fully collides with the current PDRoms Coding Competition ( http://pdroms.de/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=59 ) but nevertheless it’s no reason for me to not announce it. The prices are a lot more than PDRoms could ever offer as non commercial page, but we have less formal rules, as you don’t need to put a “PDRoms” splash screen anywhere if you don’t like to.

PDRoms headquater is moving to a new location (misc)

Dear visitors,

Yeap, it’s right… the PDRoms headquater is moving to a new location. This might result into a news delay over the next two weeks. Painting walls, getting Internet at the new location and many other things are ahead of me :)

Thanks for your understanding!

Dear Wraggster,

If you are supposed to get “inspiration” from my page, I would appreciate proper and full credits for EVERY news item. This also applies if you get “inspiration” from other places such as http://www.gp32spain.com for the recent releases at GPAIN, etc… If 90% of the homebrew webmasters can give proper credits, you should learn this too.

A year ago you were fighting with others to stop misuse of homebrew, these days you are misusing homebrew on your own. You better go back to your honest roots.

Don’t pretend to help homebrewers, simply because
* Hotlinking pictures is stealing – you wont help anyone with this -> bandwith stealing!
* Not giving proper credits is stealing.
* 75% of your news are “borrowed” all over the net or are “rewrites” in your own words, which is stealing again.
* A page having such a bad combination of picture advertising and text advertising, combined with the shitload of affilation codes – what did you effectivly put back into the scene? Just don’t tell it just covers your plain costs.

Everyone with eyes in his head can see this… your page is plain commercial, you have become plain commercial – this is what you never wanted to be. Congrats!

New news record in January 2008 (misc)

Dear visitors,

the homebrew scene is very active and so was PDRoms. In January 2008 we had over 630 news, which makes around 20 news daily.

It’s a great feeling to see so many people putting their love and effort into homebrew. As usual the major news were for Playstation Portable, iPhone, Nintendo DS and GP2x. Android is still lurking in a corner and waiting to break out.

Another amazing thing, PDRoms has gained more and more attention these days, which makes everyone of the team really happy and motivated. We will try to improve even more, but of course we can not do this alone. We need helping hands. Tell your friends about PDRoms, help spreading the word about homebrew and let’s try to grow together.

PDRoms is still a non commercial project, unless other pages who pretend to help homebrewers, but make a decent amount of money by posting lots of hardware review gossips with hidden affilation links and tons of banners. Of course we understand everyone who tries to get his costs back, so did we severall times in the past by displaying one or maximum two banners from time to time (currently none) – but everything has it’s limits and luckily everyone is having his own mind, to sort out the good and bad buddies.

Our current “Thank you” to the scene is the PDRoms Coding Competition #3.99, which is located here: http://www.pdroms.de/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=59

Some more surprises are comming up the next week, so stay tuned!

Regards
Kojote & Team
