Many many thnx for articles on security n ethical hacking and a whole FT to Security. Ths issue is simply rocking for me. Nice to see the digit archive aftr a long time. Well it luks lyk I'll njoy reading ths issue much more than thos previous.......

Thnx again for Articles n FT to Security. :)


Always confused
no fedora 11?
i will not buy this month but will buy if i have money (for the video series in astronomy, linux)
thanks for digit archive


I was also waiting for Digit archive, now no going through each and every dvd, for a specific game or DVD.
Hope this time the search criteria would be much better then the previous one.

Is it still in its beta form?

Who need good old movies?

I do. Most of them are Black & White but that does not mean they are not good. Watch them with patient & you will really discover some diamonds of films from them.

providing good old movies :p

wow no ubuntu again?
thankgod for the security suites but again DVD contents dis-appointing as the june edition.....
i shall check others first this time....


Always confused
digit seems to be more interested in giving the alphas and betas of distros and miss the major versions.

I thought they would atleast give fedora 11 DVD but.......

The 2 DVD space every month is not properly utilized at all. All crap software except last month's web development kit.

EVen they never bundled windows live essentials which is a must have.

Learn from chip they attract the users even with their single DVD offering.


Debian Gnu/Linux User
fast track topics of these days are again repeated from old issues ..
can u pl see the fast track topics thread.. lot of new topics hav been suggested..
but digit has no time to see or discuss with his team.:sad:

some interesting mag contents..
this month digit is a neutralized one..

Again a repeat issue of fast track....... and they ask us to suggest new topics........... where is visual studio 2010 beta version........ and they have provided digit archive is it full or beta......


In the zone
its surprising as well as shocking that to learn that fast-track topics are being repeated.....
Also that team-digit has been avoiding compalints here at forums,which begs the questions "What is the purpose of this post??????"

My comments in june issue feedback were also not answered............
