Recently I was thinking about a simple tool/program which we can use for sharing expenses. This is what, bought the idea of “Xsharer“. So here comes a DOS application which seems to be easy and simple enough to use often. Implemented in C(of course) and, is full of linked lists
So it would be nice if you people can help me to test it.
By the way, below is the screenshot of main menu options,

This Saturday, morning we were planning for Phir Hera Pheri but again change in the plan and ended up watching Krrish in Kamakya theater. No special comments. (more…)
Recently I had downloaded and installed Mandriva Linux 2006 on my HP Pavilion DV1000. Overall, look and performance is great so as some of the previous Mandrake releases, nothing special to add.BTW, here are some screen shots.
First of all, welcome to the world of protocols !
TCP is OK but what is this SCTP ?
Simply put, a new transport layer (remember OSI model !), just like TCP but has many advantage specifically made for the telecom industry.
Key features include
1. Message framing
2. Multihoming and,
3. Multi streaming.
Now, do we really need a new transport layer protocol when people are happy using TCP as a standard and most stable protocol on the earth? Fortunately or unfortunately, YES !
Today I got the Mandrake Linux 10.1 (official) CDs
I am going to install it on my PC (PIII with nvidia TNT2 and adcon TV tuner card) and will sure post the review soon !
BTW, thanks to http://www.linuxbazar.com
Try out this on any *NIX (Linux/Solaris… etc)
At command prompt of any *nix ($), type

Once again I dumped RedHat !
Last month I installed RedHat only for the ClearCase installation.I was learning clearcase and I badly needed Clearcase to tryout some stuff. (Specially triggers !)
Clearcase installed on RedHat without any problem. Although I had to recompile vnode.o.But that also went on smoothly.
But believe me, when it comes to Desktop usage RedHat just sucks !
On Mandrake, vnode.o compilation was giving some problem that was why I had installed Red Hat.
The error was related to vnode_shadow_setxattr ( donno what it is ! ) .It was due to some strict prototype checking. (In Make file there was a flag Strict-Prototype… something like that).I removed that flag then OMG, the module vnode.o compiled !
That means, now there is no need for RedHat
Recently I received mails from many of my friends out there trying to install Linux and ending up with a mess and finally saying – (more…)

Recently I wrote an article about Mandrake Linux installation…And is almost same for All mandrake latest releases( Mandrake 8.1,8.2,9.0, and 9.1). If interested , READ ON.
“……Overall, even with its faults, KDE 3.2 is the fastest Desktop Environment that I have used. It’s much faster than Gnome 2.4 or XFCE 4. In terms of productivity, it beats the crap out of even Windows XP. Of course, readers must take these conclusions with a whole fistful of salt, because this is from the point of view of someone who a.) is a Linux and Windows power user; is comfortable with both, and b.) has used both KDE and Gnome extensively right from their earliest versions…..”
