I bought an iPad last September from Bangkok. It’s Wi-Fi model, and can connect to Internet through Wi-Fi hotspots only. My Office has Wi-Fi and I was using it from office most of the time. But returning from office, it goes offline which is painful, you know. Considering this situation, I tried to connect my home to Wi-Fi. I have a Wireless Router, and what I need is a connection to internet. Considered broadband, but due to its frequent failure and slow speed I abandoned. Then comes Qubee or BanglaLion. But currently I am using Zoom Ultra Modem from Citycell. It provides mobility. I can connect from anywhere in Bangladesh. Qubee and Banglalion has limited coverage yet. And to implement a WiFi I need indoor unit, that does not provide mobility.
I was last admitted to hospital in 2000. And now this year on October 21 again I had to be in hospital. This time spent a shorter period – only 3 days. However, I had to go through many diagnostics test and painful endoscopy.

I have updated my book , Red Hat/Fedora Linux, in Bangla, to the latest version of Fedora Linux. The book was basically written on Read Hat Linux 7.2. Then came Fedora and it was updated for Fedora Core 4. Since then it has not been updated. For around two years, the book is out of print and I was not getting time to revise it for new version of Fedora. Recently I have done it, and for one month I was trying to finish it by giving a final print of the revised edition. At last, I spent whole day yesterday and worked on it – and at the end of the day I printed the final revised copy.Oh, what a relief!
The book is now with my publisher, Gyankosh Prokashani, and hope to be in the marker mid december. The book will accompany Fedora 12 DVD and Fedora Live CD (GNOME). Waiting to see the book in it printed form.
