Do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car!

Do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car!

Please open the windows after you enter your car and do not turn ON the
air-conditioning immediately. According to a research done, the car dashboard,
sofa, air freshener emits Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen- take note
of the heated plastic smell in your car). In addition to causing cancer, it poisons
your bones, causes anemia, and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure
will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer may also cause miscarriage.

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with
the windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. If parked outdoors
under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up
to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level... & the people inside the car will
inevitably inhale an excess amount of the toxins.

It is recommended that you open the windows and door to give time for
the interior to air out before you enter. Benzene is a toxin that affects your
kidney and liver, and is very difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

"When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it,
you have a moral obligation to share it with others"

The top five cancer-causing foods

Live Life Without Limits!

The top five cancer-causing foods are: Hot dogs
Because they are
high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.
2. Processed meats and bacon

Also high in the same
sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.
3. Doughnuts

Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.
4. French fries

Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process.
They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.


1. No Breakfast

People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating

It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping

Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely

Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'

Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven





I have known for years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, It's how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it. So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these 'Safe' appliances. What about the nurse in Canadathat warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed them when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it's safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying.

Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term - permanent - brain damage by 'shorting out' electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body..

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6).. The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America .

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

Have you tossed out your microwave oven yet? After you throw out your microwave, you can use a toaster oven as a replacement. It works well for most and is nearly as quick.. The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. 'brainwashing', has also been proven. We're attempting to obtain copies of the 1970's Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.


God's Pharmacy is Amazing! (re-Published)

(This article has been across the Internet a dozen times, but it is worth repeating.)

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... all before making a human. God made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These foods are best and more powerful when eaten raw. God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actual ly bal ance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just l ike the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Research shows onions clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. Garlic also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.



This information was in The New York Times several weeks ago as part of

their "Spotlight on the Home" series that highlighted creative and fanciful

ways to solve common problems......

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one

cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin

B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium

and Zinc.

2.Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick

up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates

that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing

a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a

soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in

a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The

chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminium to give off a scent

undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the


5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or

to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem

area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the

collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing

the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber

slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free.

Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish

essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium,

avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge?

Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers,

traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you

don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber

over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that

not only looks great but also repels water.

9. Need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the

problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the

spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the

chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water

and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has

been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during

final exams..

11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints?

Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your

tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill

the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless

steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to

clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine,

but is won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while

you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and

slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and

markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer

ways to solve life's everyday problems..

Have a GR8 day !

"It works like that my brother; without Jesus you are nothing in this world"

Two donkeys were in the field nearby Jerusalem . The one donkey said;

"I don't understand it, just yesterday everyone was throwing their clothes and palms on the road when I was carrying Jesus on my back but now I am back to being a nothing. Those people don't even see its me who was carrying Jesus."

The other donkey said: "It works like that my brother;
without Jesus you are nothing in this world"

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body.These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to
genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.
Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.

By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE WEST MADE US 2 CHANGE FROM SEA 2 WHITE IODISED SALT )

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus.

By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.

A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains
livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for

building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.

Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become
putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind,
body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily
, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkinshas recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at WalterReedArmyMedic alCenteras well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at CastleHospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.

You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, CorningWare, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent to all in your life,

I am doing so now.

To my Fellow (Filipino's) and the People Around the World, who need to configure their ATA. See below settings.

Step 1 Upgrade the ATA firmware to the latest version

Step 2 Ensure that you have enough bandwidth for uplink and downlink.

•For G.711 fallback, it is recommend to have ~100Kbps. (PAP2T)

•For T.38, allocate at least 50 kbps. (SPA2102)

Step 3 To optimize G.711 fallback fax completion rates, use the following settings on the
Line tab of the Linksys ATA:

•Network Jitter Buffer: very high

•Jitter buffer adjustment: disable

•Call Waiting: no

•3 Way Calling: no

•Echo Canceller: no

•Silence suppression: no

•Preferred Codec: G.711

•Use pref. codec only: yes

Step 4 If you are using a Cisco media gateway for PSTN termination, disable T.38 (fax relay) and enable fax using modem passthrough.

For example:

modem passthrough NSE payload-type 110 codec g711ulaw

fax rate disable

fax protocol pass-through g711ulaw

Step 5 Enable T.38 fax / Passthru_Method on the PAP 2T by configuring the following parameter on the Line tab for the FXS port to which the FAX machine is connected:

FAX_Passthru_Method: ReINVITE (for PAP2T while in SPA2102 = NSE)

Note If a T.38 call cannot be set-up, then the call should automatically revert to G.711 fallback.
Asterisk or any VOIP proxy server applicable but Need changes and updates in asterisk for you able to use FOIP.

I hope this information will help you to configure the ATA device.

After Installing Debian 4 in HP Integrity RX 1600 - Upon reboot, the system will show up the message "Loading initrd...."

I discovered in Itanium HP server that EFI will not permit the VGA
to be the console so I made some changes with EFI Manager.
This document will help others to solve their issue in installing
linux or any OS with their HP integrity RX 16XX servers.

I will just explain to all the readers of this blogs what
I'd experience and work around.

After the successful installation and Upon reboot, the system will show up
the message "Loading initrd...." but it will stop there.

Solution and work around:

In this link you will see the reordering of serial devices and
explaination why HP will not use the VGA.

4.6.5 Serial device reordering

If you have an HP machine and you're using the MP serial console port (the connector labelled "console" on the 3-headed cable), this kernel upgrade will break your console!

Upon reboot, the system will show up the message "Loading initrd...." but it will stop there. Notice that systems with outdated firmware will show similar symptoms, although the issue is related to kernel incompatibilities (see Upgrading to a 2.6 kernel, Section 5.2).

Please read the following information before upgrading.

  • The console device will change from ttyS0 to ttyS1, ttyS2, or ttyS3 so

    • Edit /etc/inittab to add a getty entry for /dev/ttyS1 (rx4640, rx5670, rx7620, rx8620, Superdome), /dev/ttyS2 (rx1600), or /dev/ttyS3 (rx2600).

    • Edit /etc/securetty to add ttyS1, ttyS2, or ttyS3.

    • Leave the existing ttyS0 entries in /etc/inittab and /etc/securetty so you can still boot old kernels.

  • Edit /etc/elilo.conf to remove any "console=" arguments.

  • Run elilo to install the bootloader with new configuration.

  • Reboot and use the EFI boot option maintenance menu to select exactly one device for console output, input, and standard error. Then do a cold reset so the changes take effect.

    For the MP console, be careful to select the device with "Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(...)/Uart" in the path.

More details about these changes and troubleshooting hints are available at

Document how Linux/ia64 names serial devices and how to use them
as console devices.

+ As of 2.6.10, serial devices on ia64 are named based on the
+ order of ACPI and PCI enumeration. The first device in the
+ ACPI namespace (if any) becomes /dev/ttyS0, the second becomes
+ /dev/ttyS1, etc., and PCI devices are named sequentially
+ starting after the ACPI devices.
+ Prior to 2.6.10, there were confusing exceptions to this:
+ - Firmware on some machines (mostly from HP) provides an HCDP
+ table[1] that tells the kernel about devices that can be used
+ as a serial console. If the user specified "console=ttyS0"
+ or the EFI ConOut path contained only UART devices, the
+ kernel registered the device described by the HCDP as
+ /dev/ttyS0.
+ - If there was no HCDP, we assumed there were UARTs at the
+ legacy COM port addresses (I/O ports 0x3f8 and 0x2f8), so
+ the kernel registered those as /dev/ttyS0 and /dev/ttyS1.
+ Any additional ACPI or PCI devices were registered sequentially
+ after /dev/ttyS0 as they were discovered.
+ With an HCDP, device names changed depending on EFI configuration
+ and "console=" arguments. Without an HCDP, device names didn't
+ change, but we registered devices that might not really exist.
+ For example, an HP rx1600 with a single built-in serial port
+ (described in the ACPI namespace) plus an MP[2] (a PCI device) has
+ these ports:
+ pre-2.6.10 pre-2.6.10
+ MMIO (EFI console (EFI console
+ address on builtin) on MP port) 2.6.10
+ ========== ========== ========== ======
+ builtin 0xff5e0000 ttyS0 ttyS1 ttyS0
+ MP UPS 0xf8031000 ttyS1 ttyS2 ttyS1
+ MP Console 0xf8030000 ttyS2 ttyS0 ttyS2
+ MP 2 0xf8030010 ttyS3 ttyS3 ttyS3
+ MP 3 0xf8030038 ttyS4 ttyS4 ttyS4
+ EFI knows what your console devices are, but it doesn't tell the
+ kernel quite enough to actually locate them. The DIG64 HCDP
+ table[1] does tell the kernel where potential serial console
+ devices are, but not all firmware supplies it. Also, EFI supports
+ multiple simultaneous consoles and doesn't tell the kernel which
+ should be the "primary" one.
+ So how do you tell Linux which console device to use?
+ - If your firmware supplies the HCDP, it is simplest to
+ configure EFI with a single device (either a UART or a VGA
+ card) as the console. Then you don't need to tell Linux
+ anything; the kernel will automatically use the EFI console.
+ (This works only in 2.6.6 or later; prior to that you had
+ to specify "console=ttyS0" to get a serial console.)
+ - Without an HCDP, Linux defaults to a VGA console unless you
+ specify a "console=" argument.
+ NOTE: Don't assume that a serial console device will be /dev/ttyS0.
+ It might be ttyS1, ttyS2, etc. Make sure you have the appropriate
+ entries in /etc/inittab (for getty) and /etc/securetty (to allow
+ root login).
+ The kernel can't start using a serial console until it knows where
+ the device lives. Normally this happens when the driver enumerates
+ all the serial devices, which can happen a minute or more after the
+ kernel starts booting.
+ 2.6.10 and later kernels have an "early uart" driver that works
+ very early in the boot process. The kernel will automatically use
+ this if the user supplies an argument like "console=uart,io,0x3f8",
+ or if the EFI console path contains only a UART device and the
+ firmware supplies an HCDP.
+ No kernel output after elilo prints "Uncompressing Linux... done":
+ - You specified "console=ttyS0" but Linux changed the device
+ to which ttyS0 refers. Configure exactly one EFI console
+ device[3] and remove the "console=" option.
+ - The EFI console path contains both a VGA device and a UART.
+ EFI and elilo use both, but Linux defaults to VGA. Remove
+ the VGA device from the EFI console path[3].
+ - Multiple UARTs selected as EFI console devices. EFI and
+ elilo use all selected devices, but Linux uses only one.
+ Make sure only one UART is selected in the EFI console
+ path[3].
+ - You're connected to an HP MP port[2] but have a non-MP UART
+ selected as EFI console device. EFI uses the MP as a
+ console device even when it isn't explicitly selected.
+ Either move the console cable to the non-MP UART, or change
+ the EFI console path[3] to the MP UART.
+ Long pause (60+ seconds) between "Uncompressing Linux... done" and
+ start of kernel output:
+ - No early console because you used "console=ttyS". Remove
+ the "console=" option if your firmware supplies an HCDP.
+ - If you don't have an HCDP, the kernel doesn't know where
+ your console lives until the driver discovers serial
+ devices. Use "console=uart, io,0x3f8" (or appropriate
+ address for your machine).
+ Kernel and init script output works fine, but no "login:" prompt:
+ - Add getty entry to /etc/inittab for console tty. Look for
+ the "Adding console on ttyS" message that tells you which
+ device is the console.
+ "login:" prompt, but can't login as root:
+ - Add entry to /etc/securetty for console tty.
+ The table was originally defined as the "HCDP" for "Headless
+ Console/Debug Port." The current version is the "PCDP" for
+ "Primary Console and Debug Port Devices."
+[2] The HP MP (management processor) is a PCI device that provides
+ several UARTs. One of the UARTs is often used as a console; the
+ EFI Boot Manager identifies it as "Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(...)/Uart".
+ The external connection is usually a 25-pin connector, and a
+ special dongle converts that to three 9-pin connectors, one of
+ which is labelled "Console."
+[3] EFI console devices are configured using the EFI Boot Manager
+ "Boot option maintenance" menu. You may have to interrupt the
+ boot sequence to use this menu, and you will have to reset the
+ box after changing console configuration.

***********To make it easier to understand do the following below. *********

When the EFI console path contains exactly one device (either serial or VGA).
EFI console devices are configured using the EFI Boot Manager
+ "Boot option maintenance" menu. You may have to interrupt the
+ boot sequence to use this menu, and you will have to reset the

A Step by Step Setup of a Trixbox Server and Polycom Soundpoint IP 501 SIP

A Step by Step Setup of a Trixbox Server and Polycom Soundpoint IP 501 SIP

( Click the Advertise Logo Icon to help blogger in expense of time and effort in R and D)

1. Login into you new trixbox server with the username: root and the password you selected during installation (command console or remote connection via ssh client like putty).

2. When you log in the system will tell you what IP address it received from your DHCP server. You can give the system a permanent address now by typing netconfig. If you reconfigured the IP address restart the network by typing service network restart.

2.1 In executing the command help-trixbox, the Help commands and descriptions are printed in the screen.

2.2 The command passwd-maint, is a help command that set master password for web GUI.

Note: You need to execute this command before switching a user mode (in the web GUI).

2.3 The command Setup-polycom, is a help commands that creates Polycom default files in /tftpboot.

Note: You need to execute this command after switching mode and after assigning ip addresses to all Polycom Phones.

2.4 To continue configuration connect to your system with a web browser, Enter the web GUI URL address.

2.5 Click on Switch next to User Mode this will open the Admin GUI. Login with user:maint pass:password

2.6 Admin GUI screen will open. Click on Asterisk -> FreePBX. This will open the FreePBX configuration GUI Admin Screen

2.7 Click Setup -> Administrator Fill the required fields for

Username: Sample
Department: IT
EXTension Range: 6211 to 6299
Admin Access:
For default settings highlight ALL SECTIONS

Click Submit Changes and when you are done click the red commit bar at the top of the screen Apply Configuration Changes , then Click Extension to open Extension screen.

2.8 In Add an Extension Menu -> Generic SIP Device -> click Submit -> another screen will be extended and Fill the required fields for

User Extension: 6211
Display Name: Ehrwin Mina
Secret: 6211
<- Just put the extension number too
Leave other setting in default

Click Submit and when you are done click the red commit bar at the top of the screen Apply Configuration Changes. Continue adding extension until completing the ranges that you need.

2.9 You have a PBX now you need a phone to configure.

Configuring the Polycom SoundPoint IP 501 SIP Device. At this point, I recommend you go in through the interface on the phone itself to configure as much as you can. Why? Because as I mentioned earlier, the web interface takes forever to become active after a reboot, and it has to reboot a LOT if you do all this on the web. Fortunately, most of the settings can be done on the phone fact, only tweaks for setting up the Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) light functionality and registering the Asterisk server under the individual lines need be doneon the web interface.

Press the Menu button, then go to "3. Settings..." and then "2. Advanced...". Enter in the admin password of 456 again. Choose "Admin Settings..." and then "Reset to Default" and "Reset Local Config." IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, SOME OF THE SETTINGS YOU MAKE BELOW WILL NOT BE SAVED. You need to overwrite the data that was in the XML configuration files on the TFTP server. (By the way, you can use the Format File System option under this menu to completely wipe everything away, including all ROM files and most settings, and start over from scratch.)

After rebooting, go back to Menu/Settings/Advanded and put in the following important settings:

1. Admin Settings
1. Network Configuration
This is the same as you edited during boot, for reference.

DHCP Client: Disabled
Phone IP Addr:
Subnet Mask:
IP Gateway:
for now leave other setting for default/Disabled
Save config -> Reboot phone

3. Using the EndPoint Manager screen, to configure the Polycom phone extension. Click on Asterisk -> EndPoint Manager (a screen will open like the screenshot ehrwin mina below).

3.2 click Submit button. A list of Manage Polycom Phone are present in the screen (this feature also applicable in cisco’s voip units)

trixbox End Point Manager Add Phone screen 2.bmp

3.3 Using EndPoint Manager Map Devices features. Click on Asterisk -> EndPoint Manager (a screen will open like the screenshot below) -> GO button and wait for the list of Map Devices.

trixbox End Point Manager Add Phone screen 3.bmp

3.4 Using EndPoint Map Devices features, to configure the extension line of every Polycom Phones. Click on IP Address (a screen will open like the screenshot below).

3.5 Configuring the extension line of every Polycom Phones. Click on Line1 or Register1, Login with user:Polycom pass:456 (a screen will open like the screenshot below).

Polycom configuring extension 6222 screen.bmp3.5 Fill all required information need list below (a screen will open like the screenshot below).

Line1: ...

This sub-menu is one of three, with Line2 and Line3 allowing you to add up
to three different extensions to the phone. There are three soft buttons
along the left of the display which show these lines. For the purposes
of this config (and what most people will do anyway), you'll have all
three of these lines show up as the same extension, so people can receive
and make multiple calls simultaneously.

Display Name

A mostly useless feature; does not override caller ID. Just put the person's name there.


This is the extension number in Asterisk. To continue the example,
we'll set this as 510 to match our Asterisk config.

Auth User ID

Put the extension number in here again.

Auth Password

This is where you put the "password=" or "secret=" value from your
sip.conf file. In our example, this was "polycom" or the extension number.

Num Line Keys / Third Party Name

Here is where you tell the phone how many soft buttons to assign

this line. As mentioned above, we'll put 3 here so that we have
three instances of the line.

Server Address

Put the Trixbox server IP address in here.

Server Port

Put 5060 in here.

Server Expires

Put 3600 in here.

Server Register

Put the 1in here. Enable to register lines with the Asterisk server under the Line1

3.6 Click Submit (a screen will open like the screenshot below).

Leave other setting in default that are not listed here.

Wait for the Polycom Phones finish rebooting, You can now start using the trixbox with Polycom phone extensions.

phpmyadmin authentication timeout

I'm just an occasional user of phpmyadmin, but some colleagues who heavily works on databases told me that they were really annoyed by the fact that after a quite short amount of time they needed to authenticate again.

The problem is that the cookie authentication set the lifetime of the cookie itself to 1800 seconds (30 minutes); after 30 minutes you need to login again.

If you like to change this behavior, edit the file /etc/phpmyadmin/ and add the following line:

$cfg['LoginCookieValidity'] = 18000;

this will set the lifetime of the cookie to 5 hours (18000 seconds).

Note: this solution came from

Its working fine with my phpmyadmin.

An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server, Make sure you have permission to access that folder

The error is 'An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server, Make sure you have permission to access that folder. Details: The connection with the server was reset'. Here's a few behaviours we've seen so far:

Case 1: Going to gave the error but going to was fine. Then going back to was fine too.

Case 2: Opening in IE was fine, but then opening it in Windows explorer gave the error.

Case 3: Browsing was working fine, but then browsing into the /content sub-folder or /shareware sub-folders gave the error. Browsing into the /builds folder worked fine, and then browsing back into the /content or /shareware subfolders were fine too.


Update the proftp packages by hitting the commands apt-get dist-upgrade then it will prompt for a step by step instruction (default setting is still the best for it)

Reclusive Linux founder opens up

Friday, May 19, 2006 Posted: 0954 GMT (1754 HKT)

(CNN) -- Portland, Oregon is the unlikely capital of a global software revolution. The revolution is called Open Source. And its leader? Linus Torvalds, the reclusive founder of Linux.

Friday, May 19, 2006 Posted: 0954 GMT (1754 HKT) story.linus.torvaldscnn.jpg
Linux founder Linus Torvalds now makes his base in Portland, Oregon.

Linux is the free software code developed by a global community of programmers. It's also the world's fastest growing operating system and number two behind Microsoft.

Torvalds works full time overseeing the development of Linux which he created back in 1991 while at university in Helsinki.

Usually media shy, the 36-year-old Finn invited Kristie Lu Stout and the Global Office team into his home for an insight into life at the helm of the operating system that is giving Microsoft some serious headaches.

Kristie Lu Stout: What role do you play in the development of Linux today?

Linus Torvalds: Well today what I do mostly is actually communication. I started out as the main developer but these days what I do is act as the central point for other people who do a lot of development and I gather it all together and basically communicate with people what needs to be done and so on.

KLS: What's your ballpark figure in terms of how many Linux developers there are out there?

LT: I actually only work with a few handfuls so I tend to directly interact with maybe 10 - 20 people and they in turn interact with other people. So depending on how you count, if you count just the core people, 20 -50 people. If you count everybody who's involved; five thousand people -- and you can really put the number anywhere in between... Almost, pretty much all, real work is done over e-mail so it doesn't matter where people are.

KLS: So you have the core people, you have the developers and you have the testers. What do you think motivates everyone, drives everyone to create the best work possible to create a good product?

LT: A lot of the core people just feel excited about the technology. And that's why a lot of people just start; that's where I started from, it was just the excitement of doing something yourself. It's kind of like a hobby. You can tinker with cars, you can tinker with computers. There are a lot of technical issues that are just very exciting if you're that kind of person...At least from the developers' standpoint, nobody does it because they hate Microsoft. None of the people I work with do it for that reason. They do it because they love doing what they do.

Tremendous growth

KLS: In the last year we've seen tremendous growth in Linux usage especially on desktop computers, especially with stuff out there like Open Office, especially the Firefox browser. Do you think we're nearing a tipping point where Linux is becoming mainstream?

LT: Well as far as I'm concerned it's actually been pretty mainstream. Already I've been doing this for 15 years and you have to realize that I've got a slightly different viewpoint on the whole thing.

KLS: I understand, but let's say your mom or my mom, they're surfing the Internet but maybe they're not surfing with Firefox just yet or they don't really know what Linux is just yet.

LT: Open source is definitely getting to the point where a lot of people who don't actually know about the technology start to know about the notion of open source and start to use the products. Not just Linux, I mean Firefox is certainly the one that a lot of people will have seen because they prefer it, because it's better or because it's more secure or for any other number of reasons.

KLS: Another reason, because it's an alternative to Microsoft?

LT: Well that is, I think, played up more than it necessarily needs to be. Because there is a very vocal side to this which is the whole anti Microsoft thing. I think it makes a better story than is necessarily true in real life.

KLS: Now let's go back to the beginnings when Linux first started in the early 1990s. What motivated you to give away the source code?

LT: I didn't start thinking I want to give out the source code. What I started doing, already at that point I was 21, I was at Helsinki University and for half my life I'd been doing programming. All the projects I'd ever done had been projects for my own enjoyment -- technical challenges, but also to just solve issues that I had. And Linux really was nothing different from that. So open source was not really a conscious decision of "I want to make this open source." To a large degree open source was just a way to allow others to look at this and say, "Hey, this is what I've done -- I'm proud of this."

KLS: Do you think there was a little bit of bragging involved?

LT: Absolutely. There was a bit of bragging, there was also a bit of, hey, I still, the way I do my work is I sit these days downstairs in my basement alone. And it's nice to just talk to people and a lot of it was probably just social, just saying, hey this is a way to interact with other geeks who are probably also socially inadequate in many ways.

KLS: And you have a mascot for all this which is the penguin. How did that happen?

LT: I felt that Linux wanted and needed a very nice kind of friendly mascot to kind of offset some of the geekiness and the hard technology. So selecting an animal was a pretty obvious thing to do. And at the same time you want something that is exotic; you don't want a dog or a cat because that's just too everyday. And everybody likes penguins, so I actually decided I want a penguin as my mascot. I want it to be cuddly, I want it to be a plush toy kind of penguin and I could do that myself. So we actually farmed out that design too and we just had a small competition for who could make the nicest penguin. Now you can see the winning end result everywhere on the web.

KLS: Did you ever think about getting into the money game, getting insanely rich from the operating system, which is now the fastest growing operating system in the world that you created?

LT: Well I got rich enough. This isn't bad. It wasn't what I was interested in. In many ways I am very happy about the whole Linux commercial market because the commercial market is doing all these things that I have absolutely zero interest in doing myself. The commercial market is how I actually get a pay check every month. And I get it for doing what I want to do and that is the technical side. I don't want to have anything to do with the commercial marketing stuff. I think everybody is actually quite happy about this arrangement, that people can do what they specialize in, not just on the technical side but overall.

KLS: Over the years, Linux has spawned other open technologies and even an open source spirit or open source philosophy. It has engendered stuff like Wikipedia, the online open source encyclopedia or even, some could argue, citizen journalism. What are your thoughts about that?

LT: We shouldn't give credit to Linux per se. There were open source projects and free software before Linux was there. Linux in many ways is one of the more visible and one of the bigger technical projects in this area and it changed how people looked at it because Linux took both the practical and ideological approach. At the same time I don't think this whole "openness" notion is new. In fact I often compare open source to science. To where science took this whole notion of developing ideas in the open and improving on other peoples' ideas and making it into what science is today, and the incredible advances that we have had. And I compare that to witchcraft and alchemy, where openness was something you didn't do. So openness is not something new, it is something that actually has worked for a long time.

KLS: What is your favorite offshoot of the open source philosophy?

LT: That is an unexpected question. I don't even know. I think the nicest part of it is not really the open source side but the whole community side which was to me not really expected at all. But it is really what keeps me motivated these days.

KLS: Now you are something of a rock star in tech circles...

LT: I don't notice that in normal life. I don't actually go to that many conferences. I do that a couple of times a year. Normally I am not recognized, people don't throw their panties at me. I'm a perfectly normal person sitting in my den just doing my job.

KLS: How often do you get the chance to see your fellow Linux contributors face to face?

LT: Not very often. There are a few of them that are local. I meet with them very occasionally. We go out for beer or breakfast or something. We have two conferences a year that people go to and those are largely social. I mean sometimes you also work out issues face to face during the conferences. Maybe it is easier to agree, but most of it really is about the social side when you go to conferences and you will find people sitting at the same table with laptops and they will send each other emails, because it is often a better way to communicate when you have a technical issue; you can write it down more, you can point to the code.

KLS: So the face to face thing is a little bit overrated?

LT: I think so. For example I long ago decided I will never go to meetings again because I think face to face meetings are the biggest waste of time you can ever have. I think most people who work at offices must share my opinion on meetings. Nothing ever gets done. When things get done, you usually have someone come into your office to talk about it. But a lot of the time the real work gets done by people sitting, especially in programming, alone in front of their computers doing what they do best.

KLS: What are your thoughts about the future of Linux and whether or not it can continue to survive without you?

LT: It has grown so much bigger than me. Ten years ago it needed me, both personally and as a figurehead. These days, there are tons of companies, there are lots of people who know the technology. I end up being the central gathering point but it's because people know me, people trust me. I am neutral. I really like doing Linux. I like the technical challenges, I like the interaction and as long as I am the best person for it I want to do it.

KLS: So it sounds like, going forward you are still going to do the job, be the as you put it, the central focus point of the Linux development process?

LT: Right. At the same time I will also try to farm out as much as possible. I still want to be the central point, but I don't want to be the bottleneck for anything and that does require that you trust a lot of other people and you just say, "hey, you make the decision, I am not going to micro-manage," because that really doesn't work. That drives people wild and when you don't even pay them they won't accept it, so I can't afford to be that type of bottleneck either.

KLS: Is there anything else you want to accomplish going forward?

LT: No, but on the other hand I am not the kind of person that really plans ahead a lot. When I started Linux it wasn't because I wanted to be where I am today. I am more of an "everyday as it comes" type of person. I am very happy that I feel like I do something meaningful, that has made a difference, that actually a lot of people use. But at the same time I don't have and I never have had any big visionary goals.
