    Whatcha doing with two tickets?

    Did they go on sale early this year?

    Well, I don’t officially have a taker for the second ticket, but I’d kind of like to. The boy scout in me made me get it.

    I had the on-sale date in my calendar for a month or more! I was there clicking away with 5,000 other crazed nerd Burners.

    From Andy Gracie

    Based on the previous years’ lessons learned, our ticketing partner, InTicketing, significantly upgraded their systems to handle the load that we knew was headed our way at ticket launch. They added 5 new servers, for a total of 16, and multiple load balancers that would distribute the load across those servers. They upgraded their database management software and added two database servers, and stress and load tested the whole system extensively. Going in, we were confident the system would be able to handle the load.

    Unfortunately, it couldn’t. When everybody hit the servers at once, it overloaded the amperage into the server farm and blew out a circuit…

    apparently they didn’t load test it enough. But hey.

    Never, been ready for anything.
    Never been ready, for anything.

    i would like to buy it very much, since i dont have enough money any way, and most of it will go on the plane ticket from israel.
    so…if you still have nothing to do with it, this is my email

  9. Lee says:
