Even if Christmas is around the corner – we will NOT offer a Christmas cup this year … we don’t want to oversimplify the matter 🙂

Do you want to own one of these incredible freebie cups? All you have to do is

  1. post a comment or send an e-mail to providing us the name you want us to put on the cup. Don’t forget to provide your real e-mail-address, so we can contact you for shipping information.
  2. Tell us what you like best at PTV Developer’s Blog or which topics you want us to push forward. Or any idea concerning webinar topics? Don’t be shy 😉

Our special thanks goes to Bernd, Michael and James for this superb acting performance! Did you ever think about entering the professional league?

  1. Very nice spot. Should be on TV every nite 🙂
    – James urgently needs to work on his British language skills and slang
    – Michael as well 🙂
    – The desk urgently needs clearing up and some kind of “adjustments”
    – The spy cam should provide colour pictures
    – Why do 2 people need about 27 headsets 😛
    – Why did they close the shades (any secrets ? )

    Other then that. Great team selling great & flexibel products.
    Keep on “trucking”.

  2. Hey guys, I would like to have such a cup. Since I got one of the XMas cups last year I am not in trouble with my colleagues anymore, but who knows… Please put “Peter” on it. Thank you and Cheers!

  3. Graet, send me your cup with my name “Daniele”, you will save me from using everyday a sad plastic cup. Many Thanks.

    PS. Please, le me also have the autographs with a dedication of the 2 famous actors.
    Good Performance 😉

  4. Something similar happened to me!!! Then I had to fight on a one-o-one thumb match to decide the ownership of the cup…this would never happened if I had my own PTV branded, trouble free cup! So please save me and send me a cup with “Sasà” on it. I will proudly show my conquer to other collegues thus to see their envy grow more and more!!!

    P.S. This could become a regular TV series…good job actors!!! 😉

  5. Really cool idea! Please send me one with “Alex” on it 😉 And maybe another on with “Birgit” on it to avoid that kind of trouble here in our office…

  6. Hi Bernd,

    nice video!
    My colleague Reinhard and I think that xServer developers should get one of these nice cups, too. We need 2 cups with “Reinhard” and “Matthias”.


    P.S.: You don’t need to send the cups to us. We’ll pick them up ourselves at your office 😉

      1. be careful – Big Bernd is watching you
        quoting Bruce Dickinson:
        “I’m not a developer – I am a free man!”

  7. We would like to have two cups. One with Thomas on it and the other one for my colleague Christopher. That would be great.

    thanks a lot from Göttingen
    Christopher and Thomas

  8. You just saved me ! My jealous colleagues just stole my last year’s cup. Maybe you should put a gps sensor inside the 2012 edition ? 😉
    I could track it then using our software.
    Regards, Marco

  9. As Frank Roser is going for “BOSS”, “Frank” (preferrably “frank”) is still open for me, isn’t it?


  10. A mutch welcomed new edition. My old one will be happy to have nice retirement after a year of intensive usage. Please just put joost on it.

  11. very good spot, I have the same problem with my colleague: we “fight” for the same anonymous cup.
    in this case the name on the cup is very helpful.
    can I have two cups with the name “Davide” and “Claudio”?

  12. Very nice Spot. We are working with mapserver since 12 years (Version 2.5 :-)) and we think that both developers need such a cup. Can you send us one cup with “Jens” and one with “Volker”?

  13. Hi Martina,

    thanks for your offer…. and even if my mother will not agree… may I have also one for Isabelle who works with me?
    Congratulation to the actors… we guess that the new identity will put focus on pTV!
    Merry Xmas, Joyeux Noel !

  14. Thank you so much for this great, fantatsic, increadable and unbelievable cup with my name on it!
    Have a nice Christmas and an happy New Year!

  15. Awesome spot and nice acting ^^
    Could we (being my colleague “Sebastian” and me “Ilias”) please also have a coffe mug?
    Merry X-Mas!

  16. Uhm…
    All of my colleagues have a coffee mug…
    I’m the one that cannot work peacefully near my own cup…
    So, please, Xmas is near…Could I have a cup???
