MERDEKA EVENT could not be announced as BGC site was down?
« on: August 31, 2007, 08:19:17 pm »
Unfortunately, I have not been able to access BGC site for the last 3 days!!! Was something wrong? I SMSed admin but no reply? Anyway, we had our MERDEKA special event today where gamers had the opportunity to trada their used games and buy 50 brand new games at 50% off MRP... Although we only had a small crowd turn up for free Lemon cakes, coffee/tea and games, the quality on offer was awesome! Among the games for trade were Tide of Iron, Battlelore, Ur, Domaine and even some old classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc! 33% of the titles on offer were snapped up for a one-time-only offer, including Byzantium, Wings of War, Tiimbuktu, etc. Although I couldn't post here as the site was down, I know some gamers here did receive news of the event via email & SMS. Thanks to those who did come for cakes & coffee/tea, and may you enjoy your new games!

You sure ah? The last 3 days, there were 2 Jedi Knights in the making. So go figure the amount of posts that were generated prior to the monumental event. Maybe its the Knights using their new found powers and not knowing how to use them properly that caused your inability to post stuff in BGC?

There has been some problems with Streamyx the last few days, but mostly during the graveyard shift. I believe they were doing some upgrading/maintenence. I noticed time of your post is at 1:37am, which about the same time when my Streamy connection goes wonky and cannot access any sites.
If you're experiencing slowdowns or trouble accessing sites even during the day, then it might be a different problem altogether.

Since you're using a Mac, then I should rule out viruses and trojans. The other suspect could be a localized Streamyx problem. Check with your neighbour if they share your problems or call Streamyx help center (horrors!!).

Hope it helps.

Did you change and internet settings recently, like the DNS ips?

jedi council has told me that i have spammed by advising you to email me or check my website so that you do not miss future events.



ok, please DO NOT email me, and please DO NOT check my website.



i shall not be posting anymore of our events here for gamers, less i be accused of spamming.



if you miss out on them because your jedu council has not posted, TOO BAD!

err... i think the correct procedure is for macedwin to PM nicdkid and send him the link that way. or nicdkid to PM macedwin and send him your email addy. or for jedi council to setup a forum to specifically answer the FAQ of where to find games.
