Weekly News #16

Hello and welcome to this week's news. I hope you all got through the "false" April-news and still have confidence in the news we bring ;)

The April Fools
As expected, we were not the only ones who tried to fool our visitors. All around the PCM / Cycling-communities people were "fooled" (some better than others). PPDB announced that they would release a 3-in-1 Diamond Database which would bring the Amateur 2006 Season, the professional road season and the 2006 cyclocross season into one database. That would be possible because of a new program which could switch between three databases. The DB would be released between 8 and 9 am. Sunday morning - and Sunday morning, it was announced that it all just was a joke ;)

Later that day, a forum member of PPDB, Mutabor, announced another april fools' joke. According to the joke he had managed to disassemble the code of PCM, making it possible to change PCM in all areas - f.e. by removing StarForce, extending the database, etc..

PCMNorge.com also tried to fool their members. According to the site owner Cyanide had invited all their fan sites to a meeting at Cyanide's head quaters. To the "trip" the sites could bring one of their active members if they wanted to. To be choosed for the trip you had to write a message to PCMNorge's owner and tell him why you should be the one to go.

One of the funniest - in my opinion, that is - was made by PCMBenelux who at their frontpage announced that they would change the forum design. When entering the forum you noticed that everything had changed into a pink, Valentine-alike design. That lasted for the entire day ;)

PCMGeeks.dk announced that they would release a 2007 "Titan" DB which would include 2500 riders and 150 teams, 150 new races and lots of new equipment. As with the PPDB-joke the DB was only going to be available between 17-18 pm.

The last one I managed to find was at the German website Cycling Manager.de. One of their members announced that the PCM 07-demo had been released and provided links for the demo. These links directed us to the PCM2-demo, though ;)

Finally Cyclingnews.com released a special edition of their news announcing that the 2009 tour prologue would be held in a shopping mall in Dubai, and would finish up an indoor ski slope. Among others they announced that Milan-San Remo would be extended t 400km and that Paris Roubaix will have an added points race. Click here  to read the full story.

The most popular DB is ...
Throughout last month we had a poll running about the DB you used. With 297 votes it was by far our most popular poll, and after PPDB Europe 2006 had been in the lead for a very long time the RSM News DB 1.3 finally overtook PPDB at the end and won. RSM News DB 1.3 is simply the most popular DB at PCM.daily currently. It took 25 % of the votes while PPDB Europe had to be content with 24 %.
A bit surprisingly PCMGeeks 07 took the 3rd place with 14 % of the votes. PCM-Spain's 2006 DB took 4th with 12 %. Also, it's worth mentioning that 13 % of you used another DB than the ones mentioned.

Panaflex suggested a new poll about who will win the Paris-Roubaix. That one has now started and will run until the start of the race. If you have any poll suggestions feel free to use our forum :)

German 2007 DB released
The 2007 databases simply keep on coming. Earlier this week, the German forum member Schütz (very German name, indeed :P) released the first version of his 2007 DB, Schütz DB 2007. It includes the basic stuff like the teams and names of 2007, but it does also include a new 2007 racing calendar, new 2007 photos of the riders and new season goals for the teams.

World Championship in PCM2 still needs registrants
It seems like Japere's WC in PCM2-project isn't as succesful as it should be. He has now announced that the start will be postponed because of the lack of registrants - so if you're interesting in winning PCM2007, Loki or Winter Challenge (all games made by Cyanide) you can register by clicking the link below.

PCM.daily League gets going again
Our new crew member, SportingNonsence, kickstarted the PCM.daily League again with beating the - until now - undefeated PCM.daily League Champion Chuck. More games have been played after that, and Chuck has also revenged his loss by beating SportingNonsence in Milano - San Remo yesterday.

If you want to play a game yourself and participate in the league, just read the rules and create a topic in our forum. That way you might end up on the top of the standings.
