Heres the normal map i used for the logo on each block, incase anyone needs it.

also dug up this old program i'd used a few years back when they launched it -
Lego Digital Designer
Free Download - http://ldd.lego.com/en-us/
It lets you build whatever you like.. and then order the parts online. Earlier on there was no way to get a obj out of it so i gave up on it immediately..
but now you can get Leo CAD and that opens the lego file and saves as obj etc.
Free Download - http://www.leocad.org/
Anyway I used it to create something last night.. was fun doing this after a long time. Its a bit of a cheat for the 3December entry, hence not my official entry. Just something I played with last night.

You can see it below.. needs some smoothing and finishing.. the textures don't export apparently.

Good Morning ICICI CIB login doesnt work

So after much deliberation we got a current account for our studio at ICICI Bank.
The Login process on the old corporate site was a nightmare in itself.. requiring one to remember ..
1) an alphanumeric corporate id (16 digits)
2) a username
3) a login password
and post login you need
4) a transaction password
via GIPHY

After a year we basically got the hang of it. I started using the android app from the beginning, since it atleast remembers the first 2 things in that list, and i just need to remember the two passwords now.
via GIPHY

Welcome to Saturday, December 18, 2016.

I attempt to login to the app, it says my password has been reset.
I attempt to use the website to reset the password and it says "password has been reset, now print out this paper, sign it and mail it to us"
via GIPHY

After jumping through the hoops I realize its the damn weekend. So as usual nothings going to happen today.

So great.

via GIPHY

Monday 19th December, 
they tell me to wait till the end of the working day for my new password to be active.

At 6pm I get a mail telling me that the account has been migrated to a new system.. ICICI CIB.
So i need to go to this new page and reset my password from there.

This time my username is mashed with my corporate id to create a
24 digit alphanumeric monstrosity.
via GIPHY

Fine. Am in notepad land as it is.

So as I use this new "username" and  mobile number OTP to rest the password... I'm starting to see the end of the tunnel.
via GIPHY


I get an sms confirmation that the password is reset, go ahead and login.

Login fails.
Both on the new CIB site as well as the old one.

Tuesday 20th December, So great. I have a business to run in a few hrs.. people to pay before they go off on vacations..
and no online banking.. in the days of demonetization.
