The Launch of New CAclubindia.com

It was a fine Saturday, on my way to the office i was anxious and tensed because Vivek was not there for the launch, i had to handle the launch along with our Technical Team. Since the morning the target was to put the new site online by late evening.
After every half an hour the “changes to make” file was updated and verified, verification of the entire site was going on and by 6:30 P.M. we were ready to launch.
But suddenly something happened, we had ordered cake and pizzas for the celebration and were ready to hit… BUT….
The site was not working after updating it to the latest version… All of us were biting nails :( restless … no appetite left for partying and then… the temperature was rising… everybody was getting blank and confused..
But then the technical team just cooled down themselves by this time it was 8:30 P.M. in the evening.. At 10 P.M. the building guard came up and said he is going to close the shutters and somehow we managed to save ourselves from ” Office Arrest”!!! :)
They started finding out the bugs… and then started uploading the modules one by one… and this took us three hours and we were up with the site by 11:30 P.M.
Still we knew errors were there but we had to leave the office… And so we did but in the midst of all anxities we forgot the cake…
At the threshold of the office door we did cut the cake and hurried homewards..!!!!!!!!!!!!
But only to look into other problems that still were up on the site.. Vivek, me and suraj continued the process of detecting and resolving the errors almost the entire night…
So all you dear members this is how you had a entire new sight in just a night stand!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for appreciating our hard work!!!!!!
