I had scheduled to conduct a one-day Fedora, Free Software workshop at Mepco Schlenk Engineering College, Sivaskasi, Tamil Nadu, India on Saturday, October 2, 2010, but due to the Ayodhya verdict, I had to cancel it in the last moment.

I then tried to get Internet Relay Chat (IRC) up and running on their college computer labs that were running Fedora. They were using squid proxy, and I had requested the system administrator to configure it to allow IRC connections. He got it working, and we decided to go ahead with online IRC training for the following sessions:

The IRC log of the session is available. They were kind enough to take some pictures during the sessions and send it across to me.

Thanks to Prof. Shenbagaraj for working with me for the past two months in organizing this workshop. Hopefully, someday, I will meet them in person.
