ClickFrenzy – Australia’s answer to the USA Cyber Monday

Watching for the start of this event with their home page on my screen counting down. Despite all of their comments about how much they had “beefed” up their servers ready for this event their page died just after the counter reached zero. I tried the page an hour later to find an apology message indicating that their site was overloaded. They knew they had a million people registered in advance and so ought to have been prepared for say two to three times that hitting their server as the countdown reached zero but obviously they completely underestimated the load despite knowing how many had pre-registered.
