About La Salle Debain

This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 8 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.

The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.

If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at

Sal Mubarak 2068

[India at night]

Wishing the entire Debian community worldwide a happy and prosperous Gujarati New Year (Vikram Samvat 2068 called Shobhan.)

The picture above, is one that's been making the rounds of the Indian blogosphere. It purports to be a NASA satellite image of India on Diwali (which was last night.) Actually it is a composite of several night shots taken over a period of a few years. Also the red dots are people who have been injured by fireworks and the green dots those immobilized by the ingestion of too much baraphi and halwa. But I could be wrong about that.

I've had some terrific news these past few days but alas I'm not at liberty to divulge it just yet...
