I have heard a lot about this book so my brother ashish brought book for us. First, it is a fiction work and not based upon true story.
The book is all about problems that most of us face in day today life (no matter if you work in call center or not). The book is all about young people who work in call center. Most of them face some sort of problem (girlfriend/boyfriend, money, no job guaranty, clients from US blaming/bashing (overrated) all Indian workers blah blah). In order to get rid of problem God calls them and guides them. Nothing to new, here if you have IT industry background or you worked in a call center. However, book has one good point how to get rid of your day today life problem, if you are stuck in such situation in life then read the book ( however if you are really stuck in life then you should read Bhagwat gita to solve all mysteries of life, IMPO)
In short, book is little over heaped and only useful if
- You wanna kill your Sunday afternoon
- If you never worked in BPO/IT industry they you will get some idea about work culture of small BPOs (please note that big BPOs in India follows very good work culture)
- You wanna find out answer to some your problem in life in funny reading

Use following command to start HP-UX network service:
Please note that your network configuration file is /etc/rc.config.d/netconf . Here is my sample /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file:
# cat /etc/rc.config.d/netconf
HOSTNAME=deephpux < --change hostname here
IP_ADDRESS=192.168.1.100 <--change IP address here
SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0 <--change subnet mask here
DHCP_ENABLE="0" <--Do you wanna DHCP? set 1 to use DHCP
You can also set IP address using ifconfig command:
# ifconfig lan0 192.168.1.200 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
See or get current IP address information with ifconfig command:
# ifconfig lan0
For more information see the summery of HP-UX networking related tools and commands.
You must be wondering how to change the system login banner. It is a very simple task. You login banner is stored in /etc/issue file. It is a text file which contains a message or system identification to be printed before the login prompt. Just open file in vi text editor:
# vi /etc/issue
Add/modify text as per your needs. In your /etc/issue file you can include certain escape codes to display the system name, date and time etc. All escape codes consist of a backslash (\) immediately followed
by one of the letters explained below:
- d : Insert the current date.
- s : Insert the system name, the name of the operating system.
- l : Insert the name of the current tty line.
- m : Insert the architecture identifier of the machine, eg. i486
- n :Insert the nodename of the machine, also known as the hostname.
- o :Insert the domainname of the machine.
- r : Insert the release number of the OS, eg. 1.1.9.
- t :Insert the current time.
- u : Insert the number of current users logged in.
- U : Insert the string “N user(s)” or “N users” where N is the number of current users logged in
- v : Insert the version of the OS, eg. the buildÃ¢â‚¬Âdate etc.
An example of /etc/issue file with escape codes:
1) Open /etc/issue file
# vi /etc/issue
2) Append/edit/add following text to file:
This is \n.\o (\s \m \r) \t
3) Save file and exit to shell prompt.
My baaner printed before the login prompt as follows:
This is server.nixcraft.in (Linux i686 2.6.13-web100) 20:01:30
Please note that other Linux distrobution such as Debian also support /etc/issue file, so you can edit it to display login banner.
