Goodbye to Fedora Project

Being actively involved with Ubuntu, it wasn’t fair for me to be a Fedora Ambassador any more. So I’ve taken me off the Ambassador’s list, as well as Fedora Account system.

I learnt a lot while being a part of this highly organised team of elites, and the memories will live on for a lifetime. Thomas Chung and Alex Maier, you two will always be on my idols list.

Ubuntu Bangladesh Mirror

It is my pleasure to announce the official Ubuntu Bangladeshi mirror at — now on a new server with a larger hard drive!

Our sincere thanks to BDCOM Online Limited for sponsoring the server and the bandwidth.

Please share the link with your friends, and download the latest ISOs faster than ever! Don’t forget to harness the power of jigdo and torrent files as well!

MAC Address Spoofing

Just in case if you need to change the MAC address of your NIC to trick your ISP:

ifconfig eth0 down hw ether 12:34:56:78:90:AB
ifconfig eth0 up

Replace 12:34:56:78:90:AB with a “valid” MAC address. :)

Search and Destroy Command

Here’s a handy command that I use to delete unwanted files from my office file server:

find . -iname “filename.ext” -exec rm -fv {} \;

-> . means start with current directory
-> -iname means match the file mask in a case sensitive manner
-> “filename.ext” is the desired file name
-> -exec means run this command when a match is found
-> rm -fv command deletes the file verbosely, without asking
-> {} will be replaced with the name of the file found
-> \; is the command terminator

Change the “filename.ext” part of the command to suit your requirements. For me, it’s “*.exe”, “*.mp3”, and “thumbs.db”. Leave the quotes as it is. Now in Bengali!

I finally finished working on my first “complete” Bengali site. Check it out and let me know what you guys think about it. I’m looking for criticisms, so please be honest and let me know the truth.

The site has been tested to work under Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSUSE, and Windows, with Firefox, Konqueror, and IE.
