U.S. administration plans Obamacare website upgrade this weekend
Reuters ^ | November 15, 2013 | David Morgan

The Obama administration hopes to upgrade the performance of its faltering HealthCare.gov website this weekend by adding new capacity just two weeks before a crucial deadline for having it running smoothly, a presidential adviser said on Friday.

"We will be bringing additional servers online, as well as additional database capacity and data storage. With these upgrades, we will significantly increase the system's capacity," President Barack Obama's website adviser Jeffrey Zients told reporters in a conference call.

HealthCare.gov, the administration's Obamacare web portal for offering subsidized private health coverage to uninsured Americans in 36 of the 50 states, has been at the center of a political firestorm over technical problems that overwhelmed its October 1 launch and have dogged the system ever since....

...because tens of millions of Americans are panting to log on and get started on their first insurance exchange premium payments.

The website is merely the first whiff of bad breath and body odor that tells you this blind date might not have a happy ending.

Let me guess, an app that doesn't work the way it's supposed to but it still installs a toolbar on you browser and resets your homepage.

So, let’s see!

In two weeks the pro’s can totally unf**k a $800 million website that has taken over three years to produce?

Maybe we should put Mooch in charge of an audit of the no-bid cost plus contract let to her friends.

Perhaps this would disclose how many millions got funneled back to an unknown Chicago bank account!

These incompetent clowns still haven't figured out that it's mot a capacity problem? They can add servers 'til the cows come home, but it won't "fix" bottlenecks that are systemic and haven't even been identified!

And it certainly won't fix the browsing feature that was either crippled or removed, so that the "shoppers" would be unable to see how bad it is, until after they've surrendered all their personal data, and have to deal with sticker shock.

The websites aren’t broken nearly as much as reported. This “roll out disaster” is just a ruse to cover for the real disaster of ObamaCare — that the high monthly premiums and massive deductibles are driving people away in droves. No IT guy can fix that.

Who knows, maybe they can get the thing 2% operational by Monday. That would be an improvement.

Don’t be. Even if Obama can’t fix it, President ELIZABETH WARREN will surely continue the effort.

No. Who can afford it other than two full-time wage earners with high paying jobs? Obama killed the jobs that would enable people to have it if they even wanted to. Repeal the damn thing and the economy might have a chance if its not too far gone.

Nancy Pelosi, the Dem psychopath in the House and Dems hope the soon future Speaker of the House, maybe can again quietly routine the fix contract to her hubbie, like she recently did with the contract to sell (at nice commission) the thousands of USPS offices and lands to be disposed of. Pelosi stands to make many millions off that under-the-table (but routine business practice for Dems) deal.

1.21 more gigawatts of power each to a few more flux capacitors
and these stooges will blow themselves up. Tragedy and comedy!
It really is like watching a long freight train jump track, in slo-mo,
while an engineer is leaning out the window yelling ‘Woo woo woo!’

My new book’s first lines about those who screwed up the Obamacare computer programs and repairs:

“It was a cold and rainy night in Washington, D.C. After midnight the tide was going out, and so were bodies with it.”

They added capacity? Nice. 20 VM’s? 60 VM’s? How are they scaling it? What is the bandwidth? Only takes 2-3 months to expand bandwidth. How are they failing over?

Subpeona the issues log and the risk register.

March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.

December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.

What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this federal government to build a working webpage.

Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin - all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!!

And they can’t build a webpage.
