Research Oriented Essays/ Reports

APOLOGY: One of my first articles was written at the age of 20/21 and being a little less “aware” ended up having a lot of its text copied from a primary source since I thought “its english right?”  And so if you come across this article http://linuxgazette.net/128/saha.html, it was the foolishness of youth. My apologies.
