While I was in BIT, I with applegrew's idea and help of two amazing people Debjit Saha and Himanshu Ojha started BIT LUG (read about it in BIT gets lug)..
Last year when I left BIT, I kept in touch and people wanted to start a website since it was difficult to get finance, sponsorship etc. So, while buying, I also got and gave them full freedom over the domain. Even once when they wanted to change the name server I was in delhi without any internet etc. Still I found a way to change it so they could host easily. But after an year of getting the domain nothing was up on the site except for a default wordpress page..
For months I kept calling and emailing them telling them to put something up, but instead they kept giving lame excuses like they had exams etc.. (mind you their own website got updated regularly but for them to take out one day for was toooooo much).
Anyways, a month back I sent out a warning email saying that I would no longer support the domain if there is no progress. Still there was no response..
So, with a heavy heart on 22 december  I terminated the domain and on 24 december the person incharge of BIT LUG (without emailing me) make a blog that the domain going down is not his fault as he is low on man power.!! (does making a website require an year..??)
Anyways, what is done is done.. It was a sad loss..
But anyone one genuinely interested n making a BIT LUG website do contact me..
I will give you a webspace to make a website and then get the domain back to it..
