Trip to Rajgarh, HP with Great Developers

On trip to Rajgarh, it was our good luck to have nice bus at affordable and good price. It was fit in our budget. I was managing all monetory things, so it was a good experience to manage all the stuff, the CA experience. First stop was Pinjore, there we were served with so tasty “chid’ve” made by Ma’am, Mrs. Rai. Then we moved packed up and left for Solan, The hilly and mighty mountains were big and the rivier view sideby the road was very good. In the meantime, I was talking to Driver, he told me that you guys are calm of all who went to trip in my bus. He was also happy with us. After reaching solan, I felt cool brezes throughout my head,nose and ears. So, here we go this was cool and more comfortable place. In Rajgarh we found a awesome place to hangout, that is the camping place in Rajgarh on a bank of a river flow. We started to climb the slippery mountains in the camping area, my pants were full of durt and charcoal as I was sitting on burned trees. I seem to be luckiest, I was having my clothes, So I was like sleeping in the water and others got eyes on me, haha :). We were eating mangoes and singing songs in the chilling water of the river, and that was the memorable time. After spending 3-4 hours in the watery stuff, we left for Gurudwara Baru Sahib, We had Langer over there, it was surprising so see volunteers at langer hall of age less than 5. The day was moving so fast, it was 6 already, one of my friend got her shoes broken by trekking on the mountain. So we bought sandals for her and left the place around 6 PM. The Journey was long, it almost took 8 hours. For 1 hour we stopped at eating place “Jimidara da Dhaba”, Food was OK. we finished and reached Ludhiana by 3 AM. The thing which I cannot forget is Rai Sir singing the song “Rasta Rasta aankh meri ladi hai”, acually it is a nice song. We were short of time, but in this short span of time, we did a lot of enjoyment, everyone was happy and charming out full day. It was totally a memorble trip. Thank you GD and Thank Dr.H.S.Rai who made this Trip possible.

MUTT – encrypting password with GNUpg

To encrypt password with mutt, we will be using GNUpg, install it :

For Debian based : $ sudo apt-get install gnupg gnupg-agent
For RPM based : $ sudo yum install gnupg gnupg-agent

after installing it you need to generate an encryption key by using following.

gpg --gen-key

Select appropriate options. Enter you name, email and passphare when it asks. Do not forget your passphrase.
now create a file .pass place it in your home folder, I am placing it here :

touch ~/.mutt/.pass

contents fo following file should be :

GMail:<use tab>mySecretPassowrd

encrypt it by using:

cd ~/.mutt
gpg --encrypt .pass

Now you will see a file is created as .pass.gpg , if it is there, you can delete orignal .pass file. After this step you have to make changes to .muttrc file. Append the following by doing appropriate changes

set imap_pass = `gpg -d ~/.mutt/.pass.gpg | awk '/GMail:/ {print $2}'`

NOTE : if imap_pass and smtp_pass are defined anywhere else, you have to remove them or comment those two lines like this :

#<s>set imap_pass = ""</s>
#<s>set smtp_pass = ""</s>

Thats it, now you can start mutt and it will ask the passphrase for your key, and will never irritate you again 🙂
Good Luck.

MUTT – The Ultimate Mailing Client

Mutt is a small but very powerful text-based mail client for Unix operating systems. The current stable public release version is 1.4.2.3; the current development release version is 1.5.21. For more information, refer : http://mutt.org

First of all,

Download Needed files.

Next, Installing Mutt.

for Debian based : $ sudo apt-get install mutt urlview
for RPM based : $ sudo yum install mutt urlview

Thats it, mutt is installed, next you need to have a .muttrc configuration file now. Firstly execute following commands :

$ mkdir ~/.mutt
$ mkdir ~/.mutt/cache
$ mkdir ~/.mutt/cache/{bodies,headers}
$ touch ~/.mutt/certificates

Now look for muttrc file in the tar.gz archive, make changes according to your user,password and set your favourite editor to to compose messages. Place this file into your home directory and rename to .muttrc . Now you’re done, start mutt with :

$ mutt

Basic usage :

enter : To open a message and scroll down in a message
i : To get back to all messages screen
backspace : To scroll up in a message
r : To reply a message
m : To compose
y : To send composed email
left arrow : To go to previous message in reading screen
right arrow : To go to next message in reading screen
c then ? : To go to gmail folder list

That all for now, use “?” at any screen for help menu. Let your mouse, have some sleep ;-).

All email clients suck, this one just sucks less ~ Mutt.
Happy Mutting !
