Tell us your views about Euthanasia

Euthanasia [eu·tha·na·sia (yū’thə-nā’zhə)]; the act or practice of ending the life of an individual suffering from a terminal illness or an incurable condition, as by lethal injection or the suspension of extraordinary medical treatment.

Euthanasia is one the biggest and the hottest debated thing in our Modern Day World. I personally think so. Thats because a persons to Right to Kill himself arises. Do you think the person should be allowed to die or Life is way too precious for someone to end it on one’s wish.

Finally Finally got the Internet going on Ubuntu

Its been two days now that I got the net running on Ubuntu. Its a great feeling posting from Ubuntu.

My ISP SifyBroadband gives a Dynamic IP connection, so I have to login everytime, despite having an Unlimited Connection. Since about 1 year they enforced their stupid and the most dumbest dialers on everyone.

Recently when I decided to shift fulltime to Linux, I found that their linux support was very primitive (a command based login) and it never ever seemed to work. Then I tried a few alternate GNU dialers available. I couldn’t get most of them to run (I an complete newbie when it comes to linux) and the one that I got to work was not accepted by their Servers. The only reason I have stuck to it is because its service is pretty reliable and really one of the most cheapest.

Well two days ago, I managed to crash Windows XP and reached Ubuntu (missed the 10 sec deadline in GRUB) and during the start up procedure noticed

Syncronizing clock with ntp.ubuntulinux.org [OK]

instead of the usual

Syncronizing clock with ntp.ubuntulinux.org [FAIL]

This was a bit of surprise and checked wether net was there. And to my surprise, I had an active net connection. Then well the net was working properly all day long, even managged to upgrade Firefox from 1.07 to 1.5 and apply a few updates. Also it didn’t even log me out during the two & half hour loadshedding in the other phase, when the network goes down (thats strange because they have something called heartbeats to check wether the connection is active or not).

Well for that matter I dont mind doing this, since crashing Windows XP is really easy (normal shut down procedure seem to get me loged out of Sify Servers). But the only greif is a process that should take only 30 secs now takes more than 10 minutes (I have an antique PC, it almost 6 years old).

Ubuntu 5.10 is really cool, although it lags a little bit compared to windows (I have only 64 MB RAM on a P3), but am sure will mange to get it to run at better speed than XP. Well I will end by blah blah here and look at getting used to with Ubuntu, and most importantly learn how to install a few of my favourite softwares, which are not available through the Synaptic Package Manger.

Review :: Google Pack

Google Pack
Ratings: Poor

Recently Google launched Google Pack (http://pack.google.com), its way to give us all the sofwares its got and some other which Google claims are Essential.

So what comes in this pack, all the Google Software, its favourite Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar, Ad-Aware SE Personal, Norton Antivirus 2005 Special Edition and Adobe Reader 7. Then there are a few other additional softwares viz. Google Talk (yes its not included in essential ones) RealPlayer, GalleryPlayer HD Images and Trillian. So in all 13 softwares of which it preselects 9 of them and the rest 4 are for you to decide. But then one can completely customise what one wants to download and not.

How much is the Moto Razr For???

Yesterday I saw the AD on TV that Moto Razr is now has a M.R.P. of just INR 12,495/- After having seen its price fall by at least INR 500 every 15 ~ 20 days. Now that’s a hell lot cheaper than INR 30,000/- when it was launched just about more than a year ago or to be precise when I had enquired about its price. That’s a whooping 60% drop in price in just about a year with no soaps dished out by the government 😮 And that essentially makes the phone available below the very important 10K mark if you look around hard in the market.

Ubuntu 5.10 CDs Recieved

Well I received my Ubuntu 5.10 CDs without any fuss this time around. The postman just delivered it to me without any fuss.

Last time around I had a big mess because I had ordered 25 CDs and had to go through hell 🙁 See what I went through last time around here

This time around I had ordered 5 CDs as against 25 Last time around. This time Ubuntu send those CDs pretty quick in just about a month’s time as against more than 2 ½ months last time around. They are improving and fast.

The biggest improvement I see this time around is the mentioning of price of each CD. Man this will really help the case in the Customs Office. I wish they mentioned the price a bit larger so that the foolish customs can see it clearly.
