hall.. I've managed to book it already, with aswath, all facilities
 lab maintainance comes much later, once we grow in strength, as does
e-libs etc.
 This one should be linux only, I think ...

 I think we can have a session on the life cycle of programs, viz,
editing,compiling,debugging,profiling this time. Or we take up one of
mm,process management and have an indepth session on that, based on linux
 I can do the mm thingy.

one can also have networking stuff like DNS working/setting up, POP/SMTP
