Current Issue

I am very happy to present the 100th issue of Nettalk. It is not a great achievement but still it matters me a lot. When I started this, I never thought that I will be able to come up to here . I am very thankful to all of you for your support and encouragement. Again, I have got lots of suggestion to improve further and one of the suggestions was to make it available on the Net. It is my pleasure to announce that now Nettalk will be available on the Net and it can be accessible from http://nettalk2.tripod.com The site is under construction and soon all the issues will be made available through this website. I would like to give special thanks to my friend B Maruthu pandian, trainee in NCSI, IISc for designing the website as well as creating the templates. I also would like to give thanks to my friend T S Prasanna, Librarian, Intel India Development Centre, Bangalore for preparing an overview of all the published issues, which is available from the above-mentioned website.
Again, I am always looking for the support/suggestions from all of you.
