    Virtualizing Existing Desktop, Successfully!

    Well that is something. I look forward to seeing your guide. I have to say with Linux this isn't much of a problem because the /home partition is separate and you can upgrade to a new computer and reinstall the OS without losing everything. You do have to install all your programs again but...

    ICC Cricket WorldCup 2015

    It's going to be either Australia or New Zealand this year. I think NZ is more likely which would be about time for them since they keep going to semi finals and then crashing out. India unfortunately lacks bowlers. The conditions are not favourable to sub-continent teams.

It motivated them to think short term so that the stock price would go up and they could make money that way. That is why they took undue risk and started lending to people who couldn't pay...

    Shell scripting 101

    If you go through that tldp guide you'll see that there are like 5 different types of if statements in bash. What evaluates to true or false also varies. Sometimes 1 is a true and sometimes it is a false depending on the construct you use. It's confusing as hell.
