  1. “Internal Service Error”

    There was a problem with the resource I was looking for. It cannot be displayed. :(

    Crashed at 6:01. Impressive.

  3. They…have forsaken us *weeps*.

  4. This problem is caused by CCI announcing a specific date and time when tickets go on sale. In years past, everyone would buy their tickets whenever they happened to notice they were available. The way they have it now, every single attendee is trying to buy tickets at exactly the same time.

  5. That’s exactly it Jarod. I’d always wait until April or passes were ‘almost gone’. But here I am, up two hours early, refreshing the hell out of Epic Registration.

    On the plus side there is a certain ironic humor in constantly getting the “Unexpected Error” message. Not unexpected here. :)

  6. “The web system has encountered an error while attempting to service your registration process.”

    Perhaps the best way is to switch it on a few days in advance, at 4 AM EST, and let the Twitterverse spread the word.

    Comic-Con? I thought the one in San Diego was Glee-Con.

  8. A specific date and time *and* putting everything on sale at once instead of staggering it. Last year they waited a few weeks before putting the 1-day tickets on sale. That would have gone a long way toward spreading the load over time.

  9. Sean D. says:

    Oh, this so does not bode well for Hoteloween.

  10. I singlehandedly brought it down, via my iPad on the subway, it was I!

    It’s really twisted that I’m enjoying being part of this fabled mad rush and inconvenience, isn’t it? Truth be told, I just happened to remember that registration had opened and decided to check it out. Got two different types of “not available” messages and then a plain ol’ 500 error message.

    Frankly, I’m not sure whether I need to rush madly, you-snooze-you-lose, or whether it’s just as well to wait until things cool off. There are a few alarmist stories out there saying you’ll never get in unless you storm the gates the very first second, so of course everyone is…storming the gates at the very first second.

    So we can still meet the cast of Weeds?

    This is the problem, but SDCC did this to itself, beginning with Hall ‘H’, escalating with those stupid bar graphs that show you how close they are to being sold out, and then culminating in these repeated server meltdowns. Want to trigger a run on the bank? Lock the doors.
