11:50:12 adaptives: It's that way in most educational institutes... but some have more recently started accepting admissions in Jan also... but these are usually autonomous engg. colleges.
11:50:15 SusanEttenheim: shall we create a new one and all move over?

12:03:38 erikacruvinel: Yesterday, I could see her online and I got her message at the top of our blog page, but I was not sure how it worked.
12:03:41 Paul_Ellerman: erika if you look to the left side of the screen
12:03:54 Paul_Ellerman: under who's on;line
12:04:16 erikacruvinel: Yes, I can see that.
12:07:19 Randy: I must go. Thank you everyone for an informative session.
12:10:56 JL:
12:11:28 erikacruvinel: Bye evreyone! Thanks!
12:12:22 Paul_Ellerman: Interesting... if you the instant message while you have the chat room open, it kicks you out fo the chat room (or at least for me it does)
12:14:07 cheryloakes: s you all later on, thanks for the information.
12:17:05 JL: Allows users to post content using applications that support XML-RPC blog APIs.
12:18:13 JL: RSD or Really-Simple-Discovery is a mechanism which allows external blogger tools to discover the APIs they can use to interact with Drupal. Here you can set the preferred method for blogger tools to interact with your site. The common XML-RPC engines are Blogger, MetaWeblog and Movabletype. If you are not sure which is the correct setting, choose Blogger.
