Code is poetry

I had a friend visiting over last night asking for a PC Suite for Motorola phones for his Windows box for accessing the internet via GPRS. That reminded me that I had a basic Moto phone myself thrown somewhere. After a bit of head-banging, I discovered where it was, plugged out my N73, plugged the Moto in, configured wvdial a bit and w00t! I was online 😀

Poor friend of mine! Wonder if he found a Moto PC suite somewhere. I’ll offer him Ubuntu next time he calls up/visits 😉

    Haha.. Windoze can’t beat that sort of plug n play 😉
    Even the bloat Vista stands nowhere

    Hey, I’ve been thinking of buying a new Nokia phone (an N or E series). Does it support syncing on Ubuntu?

    Had an E65, but got mugged in Madras before I had the chance to check.

    @Roshan

    You can use OpenSync

    Google up for more opensync tutorials.
