First up today is the piece about the ongoing problems with Digg’s new web site. From the article, we get:
“Our service was falling over and crashing non-stop,” Rose said in the podcast. “It’s still crashing.”
“Even up until days before the launch there were bugs with our datastore,” Rose said. “The plan was to get this live. We knew there would probably be bugs under load. So we launch the site, and it falls over.”
It’s bad enough to have the unexpected happen and whack things or not to test things adequately, but what kind of dimwits would throw something into service that they knew full well in advance had serious stability problems? There aren’t enough red squeaky noses in the world to cover this one.
