Look at the pix below:

See the packet burst,whenever you try to access some IP/node,it will
gonna show the packet size/burst. Seems eye-candy and useful too :-]

as a complementary for tcpdump i guess....

you can see the Gateway IP in the pix :

najmi@almuqaddis ~ $ /sbin/route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
Use Iface U 0 0
0 eth0 UG 0 0 0 lo UG 0 0
0 eth0

and the Domain Name Server (DNS), and

najmi@almuqaddis ~ $ cat /etc/resolv.conf

whilst, is ibnukhaldun,the machine that host the pix given :=)

maybe you can share your experience/l337 experiment here :-)

just having a seminar on Research for lecturers(academic staff),so basically here we being exposed to academic research grant,such as IRPA and also short term,contigency research. Seems this thing is not my priority right now, as the ast. lecturer shouldn't have much privilege on doing things. Hem, bila la nak buat master ni :-)

3rd saturday,but i'm in office,doing something :-)

try install Debian from Woody CD yesterday(back late from Office,around 11pm anyway)... and then edit the source list,put in local Sid mirror from MIMOS-it's fast :-)

and, this is dual boot HDD. I had my Gentoo machine with X already. Thinking about productivity-with Mozilla running and got my Debian upgraded, so i opt to chroot

See it's running here:

my sources.list:

almuqaddis:# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb sid main non-free contrib
deb-src sid main non-free contrib


The first plan is to install FreeBSD in this machine, but I think I have problem to use the rest of HDD block,as it doesn't seems in FreeBSD as usable block. ( I define the Logical area to be used. It is usable in Linux,but seems on FreeBSD as a big slice containing logical)...

almuqaddis:~# fdisk -l /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 39813 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes

/dev/hda1 * 1 13213 6658911 7 HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:

Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary:

/dev/hda9 34872 39812 2490043+ 83 Linux

I plan to use /dev/hda9 as FreeBSD partition in the first place. Hem,i need more reading and comprehension on this thing anyway....

salam blog,
i got my Gentoo running with full of whistles and bells-if that what really want to call it.

najmi@almuqaddis ~/mp3 $ df -kh

You really want to learn KDE l10n, get thru this first. :-]

well for the first few lines on those logs,it won't work that way. I tried to create a local directory with cvs command . Seems no luck.

Shame to me.hehe.

masuk ke office awal sket harini... pukul 8 dah sampai. nasib ada kunci,so aku terus masuk bilik.

then setup iMac yang ada kat sini. nak guna mouse pulak takde. aku nak testing samba Mac ni kalo jalan.

semalam dr muhyiddin bagi task baru... nak kena buat single sign-on pada lab tu. for the first plan,i having a thought utk implement OpenLDAP sahaja.
tang authenticate dgn Windows AD,aku rasa nanti dululah. pasai kena kejar dateline. student dah nak masuk,jadi aku kena ensure lab tu properly functional as expected:

1-single sign on
2-network storage

herm kena buat RnD lagi. rasa cam kat kampeni lama.

sambil2 tu kena cari port utk buat masters... local aku terfikir USM. tang oversea ni IITA india tu tough univ... kalo pegi top U kat US pun aku fikir sama jugak....
