They launched their sale and now their website is maxed out and reports server is too busy. Nice bit of poor planning. Epic fail.

Bah humbug!
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

Wex's website has the same issue. You'd have thought they'd have spun up a few more web servers ready for the launch of the sale.

Are you sure it was their servers? On Christmas Eve I had trouble connecting to a number of web sites. I think it was a problem with the broadband providers equipment. I couldn't even connect to their web site to see if there was a fault report. Today everything is back to normal. Probably just needed someone to switch everything off and back on again. :-)

yes, I'm sure it was their websites. all other sites and services worked fine. they'd clearly failed to plan for the sale and overloaded their servers.
