Mather Infiltrates UC Website

Flyby Blog

Pay a visit to the Harvard Undergraduate Council website and all seems normal. Right?

Not if you're into secret messages.

We were just informed that a Konami Code is present on the site. To enable it, open the UC homepage and enter the code ↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A. Voilà.

After a (very) brief investigation, we discovered that the culprit was one of our own: Punit N. Shah '12, a Crimson blog editor and the developer of the current UC website. (Disclaimer: The Crimson was not involved in any way.) Shah confirmed that he embedded the Konami code during the process of building the site. As of this writing, the code still works, so check it out (especially if you're a Mather resident).
