Parade of Fail

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry!

Thousands of people wanted to watch the Parade of Sail with our cameras yesterday but only a part of them was able to. Our server ran at 100% server load almost all the time until the evening.

The server logfile shows 5.5 million hits from about 100,000 different IP addresses just yesterday. We sent out more than 240 GB of data in one day. That's the traffic of almost two normal weeks in less than 12 hours.

So, it was more a Parade of Fail than a Parade of Sail for us.

But I am sure... the next Tall Ship Festival we are prepared!

Here are some time-lapse videos from our cams from July 16th. It's not as nice as watching the Parade live but better than nothing ;-)

heh, maybe it's my computer but the visuals are whipping by so fast I can see nothing clearly! Sort of like 'speed reading' !! Ah well,

I wold love to have seen this slowed down, it all went too fast to really see anything. perhaps a notice could be placed on the webcams when big events like this are going to take place and with the cam set to live and not 2 seconds we could enjoy the events as well as the locations. Fabulous cams.
