Has anybody use the Reliance WiMax (Broadnet) services? I am
more interested in their services in Mumbai. Good, Bad, Ugly?
Apparently they install separate antenna for each connection. The size
of this is as big as a laptop monitor or such, thats what the
marketing exec told me.
What I want to know is - 1) compatibility with Linux Boxes
2) does it work during the rainy season? Considering that rains in
Mumbai or Panvel is slightly on the extreme side ;), does it work fine
during the rainy season? I guess the same applies to the DTH setup
Only reason, I am thinking its worth a try is because I won't
have to depend on availabilty of power and such because I will be
responsible to provide power to the setup which I can in case of load
shedding as well. Thanks in advance.

I have two email accounts at foo.com and bar.com. They have different
passwords. Receiving mail is ok - but for sending, only the password for one
account is used in both - the password for the first account gets changed to
that of the second account when the second account is set up. How can one
overcome this without having the same password for all accounts? Or is a bug?
Root is system user --- has various privileges.
The application users are completely distinct from the root user -----
but they can share the root user group "wheel".
so unless you want very high thruput why are you modifying the kernel
and making it bigger.
You can just send an email to the application level user, have a
crontab job pick it up every 1 minute or every 1 second and forward
the email on.
You can even change the group of the application level user.
Or once you send the email --- u can send a datagram "pick/poke/UDP
packet" tcp/ip signal to waken the user.
You are only making the kernel fatter.
I made an attempt at making a GNU/Linux primer at
To put it simply, just something which tells newbies what it is all
about without getting technical.
What do you guys think? Do you think I may have missed something? Do
you think something could have been put up in a better way?
Or you think it plain sucks. Feedback and flames all are encouraged :)

I just learnt from a friend of mine that I should stop using Ubuntu as Canonical is not contributing to the development of GNU/Linux systems as compared to other players. He also suggested that since most of its stuff, or nothing, is upstream so we cant trust it. Also his argument was, being run by one man, who may tomorrow change his mind and stop support to Ubuntu, then what?
So, I am bringing this issue to the lista and have people's opinion as to how much Canonical has contributed and how wise is the decision to use Ubuntu?
Here is the article of Greg Kroah-Hartman, maintainer of the USB and other subsystems in the Linux kernel mentioning Canonical contribution to be 100 patches viz a viz 230 by Mandriva and only 270 by Gentoo. Remember Ubuntu is quite young compared to Mandriva, Gentoo.

The installfest is at Ramrao Adik Inst. of Tech.,Nerul,3rd Oct,4:00 pm to
5:00 pm.It's a given that List members can make Ubuntu 8.04 CDs,which I can
do myself too because,as mentioned,I do have 28 CDs,the preferable thing is
that the CDs were from ShipIt.
Why we need the CDs is because most of the student of our college are day
scholars and don't own laptops,and I'm skeptical that people would lug their
desktop PCs to Nerul.

A few meetings ago,I had mentioned my plans for holding an presentation on
linux which turned into an install fest after consultation with LUG
members.the present situation is that the installfest is scheduled on 3rd of
October and the likely number of participants at the installfest is turning
out to be potentially more than the CDs I have available,which is 28.
ShipIt would take too long a time to send the CDs,therefore,list members who
have an excess of Ubuntu 8.04/8.04.1 CDs,preferably received from
ShipIt,because they will be in the "official" (:P) covers,could you help out
and contribute the excess CDs in your posession for the installfest?
