I am back in Mumbai and it will take a couple of days for life to normalize here. It's been raining cats and dogs all day today. Looks a little better right now. Internet here is somewhat better than back home, though it is much better at off hours.
There are a couple of things that I must get done in the next few days. One of them is to make linuxdcpp run without shutting down the firewall (had to do it openSuSE 10.2, :-( ). It runs fine on F8, so should be no problem on F9.
Hopefully, the rains will abate soon.
