Thanks!

I have forwarded the suggestions given by both of you, if they face any problems or have questions same will be posted here so that other's may also benefit.

Farhan it is about time you update your paper on migration, [ re-write some of the stuff which prevented its wider circulation, we accepted that situation then as there was no choice but now per my understanding that restraint has also been removed :) now no more excuses :) ] let us now publish it here and at wiki.

Thanks once again.

Yes Sir!

I am working on a paper to circulate in IBM Conference. Will upload it here too. I have been called to speak about the migration in the upcoming conference from Emergen's platform but somehow am not able to do it. I hope to see some LP guys there in the conference. :)
