Surge iit 2009 is here..

Going by the amount of traffic I still get on my last year’s surge post, I thought its wise and fair that I should post about this one as well.

The application for the Surge 2009 has started.
From the website..
Summer Undergraduate Research Grant for Excellence
SURGE at IIT Kanpur

Undergraduate research at IIT Kanpur presents opportunities for students to do research under the mentorship of senior researchers at the frontiers of engineering and science. Undergraduate research fosters collegiality and welcomes students into the community of researchers and scholars. It promotes self-discovery, helps to bridge the gap between class-room and real world, and leads to social, professional and educational development of the student.
Now some comments on my favorite topic. The webserver that they use. Its a windows based machine and uses xampp. Here is the phpinfo() for the server. The resourceful of you can go around exploring further pages on the site 🙂
