It was still giving out orders until 2:45 ish. How can 2,000 people make 200,000 requests...hitting enter too many times?brentil said:There was a guy at the dealership with me who called a friend who worked at the GM web devision. He said the first 1000 we're literally gone in 15 seconds. The system got slammed with 200,000 requests (web requests, not car requests) and pretty much in essence DDoS'd the entire ordering system. Due to this me being #2 at my dealerships with 3 computers going at once failed to get an EOP.
Hearing people it sound like teh 15 second thing was BS on this guys part.mceb said:It was still giving out orders until 2:45 ish. How can 2,000 people make 200,000 requests...hitting enter too many times?
That's how I order all my tickets. I've been to hundreds of concerts and have NEVER sat further back than 10th row and never paid a scalper!I once got 2nd row concert tickets to see Stevie Nicks by synchronizing my watch to the TIcketmaster system and with the help of the clerk, he typed in my order and I told him when to press <ENTER>. Tickets went on sale at 10:00am and as I saw stared at my watch, I told the clerk to press <ENTER> within 1 or 2 seconds of it turning 10:00
brentil i have to say you deserve a first thousand solstice- i'm bummed you didn't get one. we only refreshed after getting denied by the server. we started at EXACTLY 02:00 EST and moved from one 'page' to the next about very 7-8 minutes after multiple refreshes . my confirmation was 02:33:55brentil said:I'm getting confused, everyone's saying they got cars up until 2:42. I was supposedly #2 at my dealer and they had 3 computers going. I jsut don't understand how I couldn't have gotten one of the first 1000 cars.
Someone posted that the system accepted 1,021 orders. Think they were at a dealership that a GM rep was visiting at thte time. So the system must have bounced these 21 to get back to its number.ateam_77 said:What were the 21 orders rejected for?
