Comic Con! All We Want Is To Give You Our Money!

Comic Con! All We Want Is To Give You Our Money!And so Comic Con International: San Diegio have closed registration again after, for the second time, the whole computer system crashed.

Epic, the company handling the online registration tell me that it's Comic Con's fault, they are unable to handle the amount of registrations that Epic are sending to them – but evidence is that few people are able to even et that far and the Epic website just can't handle the traffic. While they boast on their website that hey can handle 100,000 registrations, I guess that doesn't mean all at the same time. And everyone is making "epic fail" jokes. Comic COn have apologised for the inconvenience, especially for those who got up early/got to work early/went without breakfast to register. And they promise an update soon…

Here are a few people's experiences

t_WILLI: i got in but then it crashed again. i got my hopes up too!

SirJaffacake: Apparently Epic Registration spent the last three weeks making a bunch of new error pages.
