For sale. Want it?Our computers are going broke in office left, right and center. Though luckily, so far there has only been trivial data loss. We’ve concluded that this is a deliberate conspiracy against us, and so have hired 50 Blackwater mercenaries to scour the countryside for a possible lead on the culprit. And no finding these mercs wasn’t so hard since we’re based in Islamabad. Retribution, I will lift up my hands in thy name.

p.s. Kanye West if you’re reading this, come down and meet some of the local taliban here. Tell them “I’mma let you finish, but this guy has the best facial hair of all time.”


GIKI unable to access Varsity Heroes

Posted in Bugs on April 26, 2009 by varsityheroes

OMFGIn case some of you were wondering where all the GIKI folks went (no there was no CDES event this weekend and I don’t think they’d leave varheroes for Keller, Getty & Skove or Swokowski for that matter).

The real reason is they have been unable to load the game from the hostels even though they can play from the labs (who goes to the labs in a purely residential setup bleh)

Anyways our piece of advice is that you guys should take up the matter with the in-charge of the CPU room from where the net gets distributed to the hostels. We believe that if there’s any party that can resolve this problem it has to be someone who resides on the Frozen Throne (its really really cold in the CPU room).

Anyways with respect to clan chat, it has been migrated to use ports 8080 and 6667. We were told that these ports are accessible from GIKI. Do let us know how that goes and also say aye if you agree to the ports being open in the first place.

Good luck maties and have some Rum!! Or milkshake.

Heroes mysteriously disappear

The aliens abducted some potential GIKIan heroes a while ago. We’re forming a special search party to go after these critters. Hopefully there will be some good news in a few hours.

Clan chat dies. No one attends funeral.

Posted in Bugs on April 15, 2009 by varsityheroes

So on the night of our much hyped launch, clan chat brought the website to its knees – essentially due to problems with load. We’ve temporarily turned the feature off and are working to bring it back up in its full splendor. Keep a look out people!

Ownage over the weekend

Posted in Bugs on April 13, 2009 by varsityheroes

Many people who wanted to register couldn’t do so over the weekend. It wasn’t pretty. First, our confirmation emails couldn’t get through because the LUMS spam filter decided to play hardball. Second, our captcha generator bit the dust.

In essence, we got owned.

The captcha has been driven back to its hellish grave. And we’re working with LUMS officials to crack the spam filter issue – for now we’ve got a temporary patch in place which sends out confirmation emails with a slight delay (so keep a lookout for these on your email). Not a very elegant solution confessedly, but hopefully there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Sorry for the inconvenience folks. We’ll mend our ways I svea :(

p.s. we’ll be eternally grateful if anyone from LUMS can help us out with the confirmation emails
