It looks like the servers were down until 2:22 -- and then they started receiving orders. Wait Listing started at 2:42.
It sounds like for the first 22 minutes the server was overloaded and nobody was able to input info. Then after some dealers gave up... others finally got in. So... who knows how fast they would've sold if the server didn't get overloaded. I'd bet like five minutes!godspeed06 said:i remember reading in an article that it was 41 minutes and there were 5000 people the waiting list at the time the article was written.
Like I said earlier:achieftain said:Unless someone here postas an earlier time or an earlier time appears from outside the "official pontiac solctice forum" then indeed the servers were down for 22 minutes. I just couldn't fathom that. I figured there was just so much traffic and only so many connections that orders were getting in and we were just being shunted aside.
For your theory to be correct, it would have to be GM that was lucky. How else would you explain that the 1,000 pre-choosen orders out of the 20,000+ registrations all showed up on Friday afternoon and we entered into the system between 2:22 and 2:43 Eastern (New York) time.rover said:Has anyone considered that a thousand registered names had already been
choosen by GM before the dealers began taking orders on the 15th. That means the lucky 1000 individuals could have gone to any qualified dealer and they would have been successful in getting a car.
My intake time was 03.07.39 on the 15th
Actually, unless I am wrong, wouldn't Central time be behind Eastern time? So 3:07 Central would be 4:07 Eatern.Salamander said:Ah! Then that is by far the earliest we know of. Seems plausible too, I actually filled out the first screen at about 2:07 or 2:08 but never got past that screen.
I am in Central time and my order was placed at 1:35, which would be 2:35 Eastern time. There is no way that he could have gotten one of the first 1000 at 3:07 Central time - he is severely mistaken.Small Dealer said:Actually, unless I am wrong, wouldn't Central time be behind Eastern time?

It's obviously time for me to go to bed. Yes, Small Dealer, you are absolutely correct.Small Dealer said:Actually, unless I am wrong, wouldn't Central time be behind Eastern time? So 3:07 Central would be 4:07 Eatern.
