I have tried out KnowledgeTree and was quite impressed. The install was
straightforward enough, but some significant time and effort would need
to be spent training the end users about permissions, groups, roles etc.
I presume you have already looked at the demo at:
One issue I did not look at at all was security since it was to be
deployed on an internal LAN server. If your deployment is to be
accessible online, I would suggest you pay special attention to this.
Also keep in mind that it is quite memory intensive on the server.

I am using MTNL's Triband combo offer which gives 600 mb download a
month. This has been upped from 400 mb just last month.
All this while, I was easily remaining within the 400 mb limit. Suddenly
this month's bill shows a usage of 870 mb for march. On complaining to
mtnl they said that that was the usage according to them.
I usually run a check with knetworkmonitor and gkrellm and there would
always be a small discrepancy between the usage shown on my machine and
that shown by mtnl, where mtnl would always show slightly lower usage
than on my machine.
For last month gkrellm shows a usage of 560 mb as opposed to mtnl showing
870 mb. What can explan this large difference ? Btw, according to the
chap I spoke to at mtnl, _it is definitely hackers_ sic !!
Now that I'm keeping a watch, imagine my surprise when both my
programs show download activity without a single browser window open and
fetchmail having been killed !!
How do I find out what is being downloaded ? or what program is the
guilty one ?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake
up like every two hours ?

I agree with venkatesh.. the reason for posting this article from "THE
HINDU" is that there will be discussion.. and in this election season, we
must know whom we vote for.. Hw our objectives will be fulfilled and we must
fight for our rights..
I agree that these politicians have promised us and nt delivered.. if v
start to tell v ll nt care fr them than i think we are like them.. LAZY and
guys we must stand up and say "U(Politicians) cnt take us for a ride".
I second with venky on this
> Politics and Political parties are not of any use to us.
They are our representatives and we have to make them work for us, the
people of India. We are lucky that we live in a democracy that has
many checks and balances and it is our responsibility to be engaged in
the democratic process.
Many education institutes are seeking to use computers and internet.
However, most reputed institutions are also constrained by limitations of
low budgets and lack of IT savvy human resource. Usually suited-booted
vendors do approach through "trustees', resulting in major headaches for the
managers i.e Principals.
There are several global efforts on "opensource". How 'free', remains to be
I am seriously discussing with some institutions some solutions and seek

2. suggestions for best solutions
I feel this platform should not be talking about the business models and
financial aspects. (That may be welcome offline). But I do feel that this
platform should be concerned about promoting global standard software
Hence, assuming so, may I request opinions , availability of experience,
case studies of deployments , voluntary or corporate support etc on

Though I am a member, I avoid posting much as I have subscribed
only for the digest. To post from the digest directly involves forming
a new subject (top-posting?) which I want to avoid. I want to change
my list preferences to get individual mails so that I can reply to
those I feel like. How do I change my preferences. I looked up on the
