Financial management

This is a story I got via email.Here is the story.

A beggar to another beggar: I had a grand dinner at Taj yesterday.

How? The other beggar asked.

First beggar: Some one gave me a Rs 100/- note yesterday.

I went to Taj and ordered dinner worth Rs 1,000/-,

And enjoyed the dinner. When the bill came, I said, I had no money.

The Taj manager called the policeman, and handed me over to him.

I gave the Rs 100/- note to the police fellow, and he set me free.

A wonderful example of financial management indeed

Webcam not working with skype

I was using Skype in my Fedora 9 (kernel release -2.6.25-14.fc9.i686)machine and tried to use the ETEL E-10 phone as a web cam .
When I tried to test my video device in Skype screen remained as a black ,
and got following errors

Skype V4L2: Could not find a suitable capture format
Skype V4L2: Could not find a suitable capture format
Starting the process…
Skype Xv: Xv ports available: 33
Skype XShm: XShm support enabled
Skype Xv: Using Xv port 57
Skype Xv: No suitable overlay format found

For solving the issue I had to install libv4l libraries
Libraries for fc9 can be found here
Or simply install with yum install libv4l

Then I started skype giving following command line arguments
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype
