Dear Friend

On the link Wikimapia i went north and East to reach the Barasat Madhyamgram 
region. And the quality of work was quite childlike, at least in Madhyamgram, 
so many unnecessary references to personal relations of the one who did it 
infest the graphics, and make it quite difficult to readt at times. And many 
of the landmarks are not done, many are done pretty carelessly. I think it is 
true for Barasat too. Who is actually in charge of these works, our Lug's 
Soumyanath Chatterjee, Anirban Biswas? It is a very good thing being done 
here, but i think it needs a bit more seriousness on part of that person who 
is doing the final tagging.

dipankarda, just to clarify, wikimapia is not the ilug-cal project.

>From the wikimapia site:
"Wikimapia was created by Alexandre Koriakine and Evgeniy Saveliev,
inspired by Google maps and Wikipedia. "

Great!!! At-least child grows and become expert in some days.
ilug-cal's wiki-map has the maturity of cremetion ground - no activity
only bickering.

It is great that some one has actually spent time to add some
information. Maybe this is a better approach, of adding information on
top of Google map.

Given the level of consructive participation in wiki-map, it is better
to use google earth and keep personal copy of information, rather than
do a community project.

FOSS day celebration: call for group formation

Dear All:

Greetings. As you know, September 16th is named as the
"Software Freedom Day" and worldwide, there will be
celebrations by different groups in different ways to
promote and champion free and open-source software. I
was wondering if we could set up a small team of
volunteers to celebrate the day here in Kolkata as
well.

I am interested to set up a local group and we can
distribute copies of free software, raise awareness. I
was thinking of raising awareness among the medical
and healthcare community, among patients (and general
public) about the importance and opportunities that
free and open-source software offers us. 

This is a call for a group formation. If you are
interested to participate as a group member for the
celebration, please write to me offlist at 

arin.basu@..., or call me at
9830153666 (cellphone).

Also, if you know that other people are forming groups
to celebrate software freedom day (SFD-2006), you can
share that information too.

Look forward to work with you all later,

need some networking knowledge

Dear friends,

hope every one is well :-)

As there are some network gurus in this list I may be permitted to ask some 
help regarding networking. I am not a network professional at all. Now I like 
to know about linux based networking, server configuration (like samba, 
appache, IMAP etc) and securities. Some books are available in the market. 
But I am interested in net based Tutorials. [ yes, bcoz those are free :-) ]
But I have found a lot of such tutorial in net, so I am flooded with those.

Could any one kindly point out such tutorials which can help me to understand 
and implement the servers, network, intranet in short period of time say with 
in one month if I dedicate most of my time to do these ?

you can try 
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
or the RedHat system administration book.

If you want to understand network topologies and the hardware part... you will 
need to see elsewhere.
