P.S. One thing that you need to develop is that when you get the visitor count - you need to make sure that every time the visitor refreshers his computer the count is not being added on as a new user. Editor's Note: Thanks. Shall look into it

90 Dear Sir,
I strongly believe you should not to restrain yourself from publishing whatever news items you feel right, disregarding comments made by couple of readers who d o not have guts to reveal their names.
News page has been always dynamic and alive due to your efforts and enthusiasm and I know it is not an easy job to maintain and update the site continuously for such a long period.
Please keep it up. Best of luck for your future endeavors.

89 Dear Prof. Lucas & Fellow readers,
I know that readers are allowed to send both bouquets and brickbats but being a past EE Student and being away from Sri Lanka and Moratuwa, I would like to remind the readers who are so concerned about nature of news items that this page has a disclaimer "News, Views and Announcements [This is not an official release]".
This web page is what makes EE Dept unique and we all should be proud of having our unique Professor Lucas to spare his time, reminding us of our good old days @ EE Dept with his own way of picking the news items.
Prof. Wish you a good time in cold Manitoba.If you would like to visit sunny Florida, just drop an email.

Although I was hurt by the tone of message 86 of an unnamed past EE student, I did not strive to explain why it had been put. However, the new message 88, also anonymous, prompted me to pen down a few words.
- News Item 060, was put as an information item for any one who may have been interested in renting the premises of a staff member who was going on overseas leave [I have seen such items in Newsletters in overseas universities, put for the benifit of readers and the staff member]. However, as soon as I heard from some one that it should not have been put as a news item as it may have commercial implications, it was immediately withdrawn, within 2 days of it being placed.
- I do not need to attract readers to the EE site by putting tabloid type news items. However, I believe that light-hearted fun such as in News Item 049, or laughing at oneself such as in News Item 020 are necessary to remove the drugery of life and for readers to enjoy, rather than to be sensational. Increasing the readership has no direct benifit for me other than getting the satisfaction of having a useful and well read page.
- I also believe that I need not avoid news items relating to myself such as News Item 092, if similar things are being included about others. In this item, in addition to the DICB meeting which is an important event, the original word farewell was replaced by the group of words wishing well as it seemed inappropriate as I was coming back after about 1 year. However, I consciously omitted the usual email link to wish me as I thought that it was not appropriate.
- If any of my regular readers feel that the news items are inappropriate, I would be grateful for their comments for me to take any corrective action deemed necessary.

I think you can learn thing from your university's fellow sites like Mechanical, Electronics, Civil and Computer Science.
I also think the University home page is very meager. This is shameful because Moratuwa is the leading university for technology yet universties like Colombo, Peradeniya, J'Pura & Ruhuna have better sites.

replace it with "Antenna: A system of conductors that radiates and or receives electromagnetic waves (radio waves)".

You are doing a tremendous service, especially to those who are far away from our beloved Country/ University/ Department. And shame on me for acknowledging it only now on your Guest Book. Well... better late than never!!!
Wishing you all the best to keep up the good work

I don't think publishing news items under different categories would be a good idea. Most of the readers who are quite close to the department and the university are however , in general, interested in most of the events that are published on the webpage with varying importance. On the other hand as a good part of the readers are from out of the country it would not be a good idea to make them visit few different pages as the links are not the fastest. Nevertheless, I also would like to take to your notice that the web page is loading without any problems nowadays. In the past I had frequent problems in accessing the page.
Many Thanks again for your continuous interest in keeping this running.

As a current electrical engineering student, i visit your pages regularly. i don't usually browse the other department pages not because they are not relevant for me, but because they don't provide anything or what they provide is often a subset of yours. i am surprised with the frequent modifications u do to this site. how ever if you dont mind i have a small suggestion for you. why don't you categorize news to sections like academic, industry, etc.

It is appreciated if you could mention that Sandun's traineeship abroad was realised through the AIESEC network and for it to be such a enriching experience was all due to the Service and Learning Opportunities that AIESEC is providing for trainees, globally.
Currently we have a problem in convincing good students of our university system to take up this challenge. This has resulted our exchange numbers going down.

It's been a great source of information about the department and the university in general. I recall that even when in Sri Lanka, the department web site was the number one to get to know the things that are happening around. From my experience in Canada I would propose a page for student news and matters regarding to the courses. This could be updated by the lecturer in charge will provide students with up todate notes, study materials, tutorials, links, etc,. I hope the computing facilities are now sufficient to adopt such a practice.

I saw today that the final year project reports have been posted on the web. What's more striking is to see all the reports are formatted into a journal paper format, so one can easily grasp the essential details quickly. This is an extremely important step and a big round of applause to everybody involved in it. I see no reason why the better reports among them cannot be submitted to journals.
Though it may be seen as a yet another effort, the lasting effects can be rewarding as it would push undergrads to go beyond, to pursue higher level degrees.
Best wishes for everybody in the graduating class and for everybody who wants to further their education.

I am a Computer Science graduate from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. I was recently directed to your web site by a friend and thought I might write a few comments about your site.
1. The first impression that I got from the site was, that it wasn't really designed for an outsider. This is the first time I visited your site and I would have liked to see a general introduction page rather than the detailed news page that you have (I have no idea what the news items are nor am I interested in the details of what happened). What I am interested and other visitors would be interested in would be your departmental research, course information, academic members etc.
2. One notable observation is that who ever designed the site has no artistic talent, nor does he/she have any idea of matching colours. The red text all over the place is very distracting (You can change the size of the text and still ensure that certain phrases stand out!) I would recommend that you get advice from a graphics designer (Check out www.canterbury.ac.nz)
3. Please remove the pop up window (Search WWW). Why on earth would you want to force people to search the web with a pop up window? Just because I move my mouse over a link doesn't mean that I want to click it!
4. Do you really have to the sandy background? It is not easy to read text on it.

Well done! I am extremely happy that we are now able to keep communication /information up to date and environmentally friendly (paperless) while using the latest technology available. I am sure that the only negative news item (No.16 of December 1998), the possibility of a bleak future for the newspage, will not eventuate. On the other hand you can take a horse to water but cannot make it drink. So, please, everyone with an interest in Electrical Engineering, The University of Moratuwa or Sri Lanka's development in general, I urge you to take the lead given by Prof. Lucas and provide feed-back (for whatever it is worth).
I will get the ball rolling.
Indexing: Having visited the site for the first time, I looked at the news of the past Year and of 1999 (Jan - Oct). I would like to suggest that, if possible, the date on which the news item was released be included in the item and the items be provided in chronological order (which it may well already be, except that it is not clear). Provision of monthly cut offs within the document (or having separate links to the news of each month) may also help in getting to the period of interest quickly.
Once items of lasting/continuing interest are identified by users (through their feed-back), the ability to search for and sort them for reference could be examined. So could I suggest that feed-back be sent on items that may fit this bill?
I thank you for your effort, congratulate you on the result and I wish that this site will go from strength to strength.
[Editor's Note: The comments made by the feedback is well appreciated. Many major modifications have been made based on the comments]

Our department's news page has been very helpful to me to be in touch with the matters related to the department and the university. Thanks for your valuable time spent on behalf of us who are away at the moment. Hope you could continue to maintain the right balance between the formal and informal news. Let me wish everyone in the department a very merry Christmas and a happy new year !

I read your News Page many times every day. Although I work in the same university, there are many news items related to the University that I first got to know from your web page. So, I think that, your web page is very useful, not only to people outside the university but to the staff/students of the University too. I highly appreciate you for spending your valuable time on this important task.
Please continue the good work.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all the visitors to this web site a Very Happy Christmas and a Very Happy & Prosperous New Year!!!

Though you are ready to accept both Bouquets and Brickbats, I'm sure that you'll never receive the second as this Announcements and News page is popular among not only Electrical Graduates but also most web surfers who love the UOM as a whole. Hope you'll keep it up providing us more hot news !!!
