General discussion about PLUC and Linux in Pakistan.

Some info for linuxpakistan to be proud of.

Postby Faraz.Fazil » Thu Jul 24, 2003 3:48 pm

Hi folks,

I just wanted to share these infos with you..

First of all, all linuxpakistan posts are directly listed in google.For instance if you do a search in google with query gaim 0.53 , it will show linuxpakistan.net's thread gaim 0.53 connection issues, where me (faraz.fazil),, lemon and fawad posted.Similarly, all linuxpakistan.net's threads are listed.

I got an email from a linux user in india.His name was arun.He said in the email that he searched google for an answer to his linux question and found mine (faraz.fazil's) thread in linuxpakistan, which helped him solve his problem.He thanked me and asked me a few more questions, which i gladly answered.

Also did u guyz read this article.It was written about linuxpakistan.net and pluc by a foreign writer fredrick noronha at:

http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6204

Fredrick nornonha is also a member at our forum but he has 0 posts.

Also check ouit basit's pklinux sourceforge website:

http://linuxpakistan.sourceforge.net/pklinux/info.html

I know many of you already know these info, but i posted it for others who may not know about it.

Faraz.Fazil,
This is great news. Frederick is from Goa in India and has been a LinuxPakistan mailing list member and regular contributor since at least 2 years. He covers the progress of Linux in India and South Asia in his Linux in Asia newsletter.

i wanted to say that i am really happy to know that pakistanis are also getting in linux i am fom pakistan but never came on this site but when i stepped in felt great to know that there is a group in pakistan usng linux
i felt like nothing else that linux also has a potential in pakistan

hey thnx uppal
yea you are right linux is the best i would say mandrake its faster then rh 9 although i have rh9 cause my kdeveloper wont work in drake 9 it was buggy it jus didnt installed from the cd the cd said the rpms are missing so had to come too rh9 but now i am waiting for my drake 9.1 i have orderd it from pluc i dont know if they send it in islamabad or not and it said it is under processing i hope i get it any how

i would say that it is the best and it has a great potential in programming

i am also thinking of atending the meetings in islamabad but dont know id they will let me in
:shock:

LONG LIVE PAKISTAN ! LONG LIVE LINUX PAKISTAN

Postby lemon » Fri Aug 08, 2003 10:38 pm

Hi,

I was so glad that linuxpakistan.net that is our "linuxPAKISTAN.net" is getting recognition.I joined lin.pak when common people did not even knew what linux was (they still dont ;) ). and now its shining like north star.

Also Special thanx to "Frederick Noronha" for that conclusive article on "Pakistan Government Looks to the Linux Users Group".

Note: also the joining dates in the member lists are not correct and all old members have same joining dates why is that ???

Happy 14th August to all lin-pak users.

Assalam Alaikum,
If you'll remember, the forum was launched on August 7, 2002 (Exactly 1 year and 1 day ago :)). Because the authentication of the postnuke and phpbb system dont mingle, we copied over the postnuke accounts to phpbb. If I remember correctly, postnuke doesn't keep a signup date, so I had to reset it to either an arbitrary date or August 7. You know which one I chose :)

Some interesting statistics:
We get ~ 6.51 posts per day
Total topics: 521
Users per day: 2.11

The 3rd figure is not very encouraging. On a forum with 774 user, we need lots more interaction. Let's hope we can encourage more interaction going forward.

That is exactly my point.The forum activity needs to be increased considerably esp the first and the third figures.

If we need activity we need to get famous

Postby lemon » Sun Aug 10, 2003 12:57 am

We need to introduce ourselves to real public i mean (linux ppl like us)
For eg:

There is a LINUX ADMIN SEMINAR at Sir Syed University on 15th August 2003.

Maybe we can send a representative of PLUG there and formaly introduce Lin Pak to SSUET sutudents and faculty.

It might increase our hits.
