Let me directly give you an example scenario and then come to the connection with the title.

You have your normal office LAN : a set of desktops: say an Ubuntu machine, a Fedora machine and 2 windoze machines. You work on the Ubuntu machine.

You are the Computer Guru around your office and keep getting called over by the guys and gals on the desks next to you for some help or the other. Most likely than not you are quite fed up of moving to the next machine to jsut type a couple of commands or click a button to get something to work.

Switching off your laptop monitor

None of us owns our earth. We all share this planet and it's resources. Many of our daily activities have an impact on our environment.

You can easily switch off your PC monitor, but what about your laptop monitor?

Upgrade Ubuntu in Download Only Mode, Configured it latter_

I am some what lazy in matter of Upgradation of OS, That's what happened to my Development OS. Recently i have decided to upgrade my Ubuntu 8.04, But it show that, i have to download some what about about 200 MB, And my home internet is working on
only 128 kbps. So for me to upgrade to latest patches required too much time and some manual interaction. Also we are getting some what good internet speed during night hours in India :( and also Higher bandwidth connection is not enough for my Pocket Size ;)

So, I have started this task at 11:00 PM in night, before sleeping :)
