Covert It Live

 I watch the Geekbrief update a few times a week, partially to see new gadgets and partially to see how they do the filmmaking. I haven't incorporated their stuff, but it's interesting to see how they do things. They're more Mac focused in some ways and so they went to MacWorld to cover the event and see Steve Jobs keynote. Their plan was to use CoverItLive, a live blogging tool for journalists and I was curious as I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

So I connected into the Geekbrief servers, they had a little control on there from CoverItLive that refreshed every minute or so. However at about 9:05PST, when the keynote was starting, I couldn't connect. It didn't refresh and timed out.

So I went to CoverItLive, thinking the Geekbrief servers might be dieing and saw this (see the JPG). How nice is that, we suck, we didn't plan well enough, we'll try next time, but oh yeah, buy our servce.

 Might as well start laying people off now or get some more capital and really add capacity.
