webteam launches the new school site
23 December, 2000
ebteam has launched the new school site at 12:00AM
today. The long awaited launch coincides with the innaugration of the C-Block
of the school building which would happen later today. So it has been a
moment for the site to come up. The news page has carried the jazzy look and
feel of the site for quite some time now. We news people like to stay ahead of
the game ;-)
hances are that you have already been through the
many interesting pages and nooks and corners of this site if you are reading this
page. Hope you havnt missed our new online library interface, or the elaborate
descriptions of the school history or the very helpful FAQ for the aspirants to
MTech program. You also should not miss the fact that most of the data here is
already xmlized. So the pages that tell you all about faculty, students and courses
are generated on the fly from a lot of xml at the back. what a lot of hype can do
to your web site
lot of sweat has gone into ensuring that the site looks
okay in different browsers! So if all looks garbled on your screen please drop a
(polite) mail to webteam
. They shall
swot the bug asap! These webteam people have these uncanny tendencies of killing bugs. Its
all the fish that they eat that does this to their brain, i guess.
he new web interface to the library is a great boon
too! You can search for books, track books and the system automatically mails the
defaulters. Then there is the search feature. The word "wodehouse" returned 12 hits. Try
out all the 12 pages!

he full moon, on the early hours of this
day shone in through the window into the room of this reporter who was
till then deep in slumbers! I wonder if this has happened to you. Waking
up and finding the kindly satellite beaming into your sanctum, filling it
up with those silver streaks of light. You can just look at it and let the
feeling overcome you. There it is, peeping in through the window
from a thousand miles!
t would have been too impolite to the
visitor to have negelcted him. So this reporter took to the open grounds
to see the moon in the splendour of the night along with those glittering
stars. And guess what? Having had an infinite dekko at this natures
spectacle....he headed to the lab with that peaceful, easy
feeling. And there were 3 of them geeks straining away at their
compys. What is this life if full of care...we have no time to stand
