Some time back while having a black coffee in the morning an evil idea lurked in my mind. I instantly posted about it on facebook. Folks were eager to know more. Later in the afternoon I detailed it in another post. It went like this: ![](/img/2017/02/lugm-mag-idea.png) The response I got... [Read More]

Linux, video encoding

Finally all of LUGM Meetup videos are now on LUGM [YouTube Channel](http://www.youtube.com/user/linuxusergroup). 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... [Read More]

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... [Read More]

Creative madness!

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... [Read More]

Linuxfest 2013 brainstorming continues …

It’s been a hectic Saturday … started pretty early with a intervention (work) which I carried from home. I was hoping to finish before noon but those slow RDP connections messed up my plans. Oh yeah, intervention on WinServers. During the week Pritvi created a facebook event for [Linuxfest brainstorming](https://www.facebook.com/events/655270981171980/).... [Read More]

LUGM mini-meetup | The gang of sixteen

Last week I was contacted by the UoM Computer Club folks telling me they have a slot for the Linuxfest 2013. That was indeed a great news.

Secondly, I created a [facebook event](https://www.facebook.com/events/577716965610743/) for LUGM mini-meetup... [Read More]

Linux meetup – 14.09.2013

Like my previous blog post I enjoyed some nice music & reading while traveling by bus. I reached Bagatelle a little before 14h00. Nitin Mutkawoa had arrived already. Natasha... [Read More]

LUGM | mini-meetup 31.08.13

Saturdays are becoming fun with LUGM mini-meetups. I finished an intervention at work and called Yuram to confirm which bus to take from Ebène to go Bagatelle. Most Port-Louis buses should drive through Bagatelle and I confirmed again by asking the conductor when getting in. I reached Mugg & Bean... [Read More]

It was nice to hear everyone’s short stories and how they encountered/discovered... [Read More]

So, I went till Réduit and Avinash Seetaram (my colleague... [Read More]
