Finally 28th April is here and here comes the much awaited Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” . You can simple grab the .iso file from the www.ubuntu.com or if you want it through web there’s another method. Just type “update-manager -d” (without quotes) as the root in your terminal and it will lead you to a series of the up-gradation process. So upgrade it and play with unity 😀

We all know that man(ual) pages plays an important part in understanding Linux. For the ease of your reading, you can convert the required man pages into the pdf format using ps2pdf utility through piping.
Syntax: man -t manpage| ps2pdf – file.pdf
Example: man -t ls | ps2pdf – a.pdf will create a pdf named as “a.pdf” of the “ls” man page.
I have been working on the pygame API of the python from the past one month and make a small and very basic game “Hungry Snake”. Till now experience with the pygame is superb and currently I am working on the sprite sheets. I made out this game within 2 days and thanks to the online tutorials and python and pygame community for helping me out. Improvements are still required . I am releasing this game under GNU GPL3 license. Its fully open source and if anybody is interested in working with me for further improvements contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
