Corsair Hackers Reboot, demo preps

We’re approximately 3 weeks away from the Corsair Hackers Reboot. On my end I have so much in the pool. Yup, I know I’ll be hopping around with almost every team that will be cheering for FOSS that day, however, I’ve chosen to dedicate most of my time to the Demo and Talks sections. For […]

LUGM meetup, Software Licensing

Many times on LUGM facebook group we had fierce debates over GPL and BSD-license. Flame-wars sprouted very often, some times even from an innocent status we might have put. Therefore a few weeks ago it was decided that we have a meetup that will ensure clarifying misconceptions regarding software licenses. The date was announced to […]

geeks@mscc:~$ Hello, WordPress

Weeks ago it was announced as the next hot topic for MSCC Saturday meetup : WordPress. Rikesh volunteered for a technical presentation.

Linux, video encoding

Finally all of LUGM Meetup videos are now on LUGM Youtube Channel. This was the first time “le me” trying video encoding. I had to do my little homework about encoders & all. I was initially baffled to see that each MOV file that Nadim gave me was above 1G in size. That would be […]

Linuxfest 2013, mass mail …

Today while I had to send out emails to attendees of Linuxfest 2013, I sat down thinking of a way to mass-mail. The emails should display the name of attendees so that they may notify me if it’s mistyped. Sendmail and a bunch of command line utils could do the trick. What do I need […]

LUGM IRC Channel

Yes, I knew this IRC channel, #linux.mu since long. However, I joined in only a couple of times before. Yesterday, while I was kinda bored & was looking for something interesting/creative. I logged in & tweeted for others to pop in. A while later we had a small group of geeks joining the fun. It […]

Creative madness! It’s a beautiful illness …

Earlier today, Nilesh pinged me on facebook saying he’s getting an outburst of ideas and wants to try some video concepts. He asked me a couple of lines that he can use in a video. Now, this is what I like with creative geeks, they get some sporadically genius idea & knock your door to […]
