The solution is that we avoid FR during times that are expected to have a high volume of traffic.
I wonder if the Sharks on ABC would buy into that business model.
Not saying avoid. Just pointing out how web services work on a server. It's a tricky thing to get it to work flawlessly 100% of the time, especially in times of high traffic. It's frustrating sure but it's completely understandable considering the work that's involved and the programming that's involved.
Even if this site was load balanced across 10 servers, it's very well possible that there was enough traffic tonight to bog them down. After all, FR is the best place to be for a live thread. A lot of work goes into keeping a server online, esp during high traffic events.

Sharks would laugh this place out of the room! FR is useless - those servers have been coming for years, same rhetoric over and over and the problem still remains. Kinda makes one wonder where the money is going doesn't it.
