Scalability matters

14 02 2006

Fancy going to the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics? Think again, as you won’t probably be able to buy tickets online, since the official ticketing website has been showing the following message for a few days:

Welcome to the Official Torino 2006 Ticketing website

ATTENTION: This site is actually busy, too many users are now connected.
Please try again in the next minutes.
Thank You.

In the meantime, you can content yourself with some photos, videos and podcasts from Cafe Olympic.

Update: just a few seconds after I posted this, the website started working again. We’ll see if it lasts, I guess.
