Thanks for organizing such a great event. That was really a Hit!
And those photographs from Atul were great. I will also be soon
posting up the photographs I took.

Just wanted to thank all the organizers and everybody out there at the
conference which made it such a terrific place to be :-)
I really had a great time and interacting with all you guys and girls -
I seriously had the best conference of my life :-) Thanks so much for
everything - your hospitality, your cheerful demeanour and everything
I certainly did enjoy the event, even though I attended sadly only on
the final day as I was not in Bangalore for the first 2 days. I even
had nightmares about not being able to make it to Bangalore on the
final day and worst of all not showing up to present my talk and then
getting flamed ! But, I made it all the same !
The closing session really inspired me for next year. Some of the

I would like to thank the organisers, managers, volunteers + sponsors for
such an informative event and giving me an opportunity to talk on stage for
Also it was a good common ground for diff localisation teams to meet and
Sorry Mahendra for taking up half ur talk time (Biju was constantly reminding
me abt time (I was not wearing a watch) finally It took Biju & mahendra to push
me off stage , when they came in to announce the BoF session)
First of all my hats off to all you guys for having such a wonderful
event I probably learnt more in these 3 days than in my 4 years of
engineering. The talks were superb. I especially liked the ones on
bandwidth management implementation of IPv6 by Mr.Gopi Garge,
enterprise databases in linux by Mr. Gurunandhan Bhat. The talk
on PHP by Mr. Tarique Sani were simply superb. I know you guys have had
a lot of appreciation.
Wasnt this great!!
Kudos to Mahendra, all the managers and volunteers!!
So here goes my report!!
I happened to be one of the volunteers at the LB/2001
and now I regret why I ever Volunteered... ;-). We
all had a great time in LB/2001.The most of the time
we were running around the place trying to get
machines to the halls. Well there were instances
where there was a speaker in the hall with a jam
packed audience and no machine to project his . . .

I wish in LB/2002 they will be more. Yeah! want more in LB/2002...talks
should not be therotical..may be practical demos like the one we had
for vmware where good...like that we could have demo
for starting up or doing certain things in linux...may
be some tips by linux gurus..i.e it should be focused
more practically..and not those ones like lectures in
a college..more ideas to come....
The conference went like a clock work after a hiccup at
registration counter. Though registered, we had to wait
more than an hour. But other wise all the speakers were very
conscious of the time. I noticed that the grouping of the
subjects was done very scientifically. I have not seen this
kind of pain taking exercise in any of the scientific
meetings that I attended. Mix is so good. I attended all
the talks that fascinated me. As a user and I am benefited
and now you have set a trend that next meeting has to be
better than this. It is a big task.

Hello managers,volunteers and others who made it happen,
It was really a great show as atul told that day. I know it will be a really
difficult thing to repeat, but we should try. Well a thing or two about my
experiences, . . .

I really enjoyed LB/2001. Everything was arranged very
well and the topics chosen was very good too. I liked
Atul' story about some company for whom they had set
up a mail server on a 386 (or was it a 486) and even
though everyone was logging on to the mail server no
one really knew where it was (it was supposedly under
the staircase!!).....That was a good one..
We should defintely have LB/2002 and even if funding
is a problem all the LUG members should try and make
the next event possible.
It was a funda & fun rolled into one kind of affair. We must give it to you
guys ~E.. It was very well organized. The seminars were good & very informative. Among the lectures I attended, I liked the one on Virtual Memory. The way the speaker put across his stuff was good. The talk on IPC by Mr. Jagan was refreshing and the talk on TUNTAP by a young college student could be described as very professional. The one on the device drivers by Hanish Menon was "hard core techni". (I am going to try & write a driver one of these days.) . Some of the other lectures needed a bit of preparation or experience from the audience's side. On the whole it was like a 3 day orientation course & I guess all of us have gained something here.
I could only attend LB/2001 Day 0 (the day before) and Day 1. But the memories will really last. Here are some memories that I could think of:
- On Sunday, me and other volunteer Srikanth went to Jessie's house to get her
3 computers to the venue. We carried all of them down 3 floors along with Kingsly, fitted . . .

Sorry to write in this late -- I promptly broke my leg on returning from
BLR, and hence the delay.
Thanks first of all to the organisers for the lovely time I had at LB/2001.
Special mention to Ravi Pratap M (RPM) for everything. Just checked out some
of the pictures online. I have pictures of stuff myself on my regular camera
-- Will work on that sometime. Naba, can you point a URL at your pix too
Seeya guys next year!
Some tips that can make it better in 2002
- schedule it on a fri sat and sunday ( frankly i applied personal
- more on application software and enterprise level
solutions,databases and Linux as a development platform( I am sorry if
I have missed to attend them)
- More talks to enable users to migrate from windows( personally I am
working on windows platform and want to migrate to linux platform but
certain jargon like "compile the kernel" etc seem very scary to help
such lesser mortals like me)
- More on how anybody can contribute towards such an event or a group
thanks for having such a great event
three cheers for all you guys
