Re: Vodafone GPRS [SOLVED]

Okay, got it working. Don't ask me how, I just decided to take another 
stab at this and it kicked into life before my eyes.

Okay, for those so interested:

*** /etc/ppp/peers/vodafone ***
/dev/nokiagsm

disconnect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/chatscripts/vodafone-disconnect'

To get this to work with the USB modem, I just change /dev/nokiagsm to
whatever?

Skills req: PHP dev

Have recently heard about a firm seeking a PHP developer locally for a 
project jumping off soon. MySQL, Javascript and Ruby knowledge might 
help too. Only asking for 2 years plus experience and they're looking to 
pay 10-13k MTL, but you could certainly push for your own rate.

Anyone interested in this, or if know someone who may be, please contact 
me on: expat dot iain at gmail dot com.

Yes, that's Iain with two eyes. ;)

Au Reviour, Arrivederci, See you, not Good bye.

Guys,

On Monday I'm leaving to go study in the Netherlands, so this is to
say Ta Ta. Since I have a post on the board, I guess it is only
reasonable that I give it up, since I will not be in Malta.
So the board will have to co-opt someone to fill in my place. I hope
you will all rush in and offer you help. I will still try and follow
this list to see what is going on, and if no one has any objections, I
will keep my editor rights on the blog, so I will try and find time to
help where I can remotely. But sadly, I  will not sit with the only
compaq in a sea of thinkpads trying to connect to the excelsior wi-fi
from across the water for a while!

Any way, If the guys of the board need to sort anything out you know
where to find me, otherwise, I had pledged some money (was 10 or 20)
to the cd duplication project. I am not running away from the country
to avoid that debt, but I will give it in cash to the first one of you
who comes to visit.

BTW I'm not sure what the CD for IT students project arrived at, but
if we give it  a good push maybe we can pull it off by October, just
the right time. I think we should try and get sponsorship for it from
one of the bookshops on or around campus. I know some of them like to
support student initiatives, and they can use it as PR. Buy any IT
book form us and get a CD full of free software.

Cheers,

Philip, (and the hunt for Dutch penguins)
