For those who have pre-ordered the T-shirts but weren’t able to go for the event yesterday, we will be shipping your T-shirts soon by end of the week. 🙂 And for those who didn’t pre-ordered the shirts but would like to order now, we’re glad to announce that we will be opening the T-shirt ordering page again very soon.

Minor site update:
If you notice the homepage of now, not only that the ‘latest’ section’s update is set to be more frequent now (which means you get to read posts faster), the new posts would also appear in a more ajaxilious manner. Try to keep an eye on the homepage for a few minutes, and pray that there are new posts being pinged, you’ll notice it. 🙂

More site updates coming soon. And we promise the next site updates would be the more useful ones.
