This is a little embarasing to ask as something as
simple as triband is not getting setup in linux. On
the day we met at Bandra, later I tried it out at my
uncle's place and no success. Now I got it at my place
and I tried dhcp as well as static ip but nothing
works. In dhcp, the dns becomes 192.168.1.1 instead of
mtnl's dns, so I made it static but no result.
/etc/resolv.conf show the 2 dns entries.

Couple of things to be taken care of when using The Best DSL service in Mumbai.
1) Please change router password from default "admin".
By going into the router--->Status, I can get my router's IP address.
If I keep trying the IPs directly in ascending or descending serial order, sure
enough I will reach other routers and where the default password is admin.
Not that I can gain anything out of it, but can fiddle around with the settings
and make it difficult for the other person. OR simply enable remote telnet
management/web management and try and exploit those.
Changing the admin password is a good first step.
2) The login/password (phone number/CA number) will work from any modem/location
which has DSL enabled. This means that unlike the Caller ID based dial up system,
I can use my username/password from anyone's dsl enabled location. The converse
is, someone could do the same to me too.
while they can get your number from the username field if they access your
router, they cannot get your CA number. However, one call to the call center and
a couple of requests later, you can get that too. for any number. They do not
have a good verification system in place.
So you can start downloading on others time. Just like the usernames/passwords
circulated during VSNLs 15000/yr TCP/IP account days.
Changing the default password by going to the mtnl website and subsequently in
the router would be another good step.
3) Also, after every change, we are supposed to go into Tools-->System, Save and
Reboot. This does not work with Firefox 1.5 beta atleast.
Hope this helps.
I have already told my sub divisional engineer about this and sent a brief note
to the feedback form.
Does it warrant sending it to the papers?

I want to make an mp3 player in Linux. It's just for the experience. I
was looking around for the specs of mp3 format. Couldn't find any. That
is kinda obvious since mp3 is a proprietary format. But there are so
many open source mp3 decoders AND encoders. Where / how do these people
get the specs? If they can get the specs then so should I. Can you
please suggest a link / a book or a something where I could get
developer specs for the mp3 format?
Thanks a lot :)

I am considering buying APC BR800-IN (880VA/550W) for my Linux WS. It
has an USB port for monitoring purpose.
Is anyone using this model successfully with Linux (apcupsd or nut)?
Any other brand/model (same capac. range) that is Linux friendly
(compatible with apcupsd/nut)?
TIA for your input.
Linux is like a wigwam - no gates, no windows, apache inside

I had once worked on a utility for automatically updating tags from
musicindia website.... I found this opensource java based project to
be a very good starting point.. it has classes for MP3 files IDE tags
you may also look at KDE multimedia sources if you are comfortable with C++

I am looking for a video cropper that works in FC4. Uncle google pointed
towards LIVES. After some dependency hassles I downloaded LIVES but
thats too slow and hangs and sometimes I need to press the reset button
as it hangs my system too. It may be due to the conflicts in rpms as
some dependencies were downloaded from yum and some from the forbidden
lavin(?). However I am now looking for something thats easy to load
directly from yum and works properly. I have converted some dvds to
single mpeg files (in windows) and I need to split them into 2 cds. I
was wonndering if any all purpose video editor is available for linux.
Any tips, with user experience?
