Us? Crash a Server?

June 1, 2009

Who would have thought that a countdown clock directing every Tokio Hotel fan in the world to start refreshing the page at the exact same time would cause a massive clusterfuck with the server?

Everyone, I’m sure. It’s what we do. Anything less would have been failure.

We do know one thing: The two new sites will be a /de and a /us. No surprise there, but it’s confirmed in the “technical difficulties” message. Which, at this moment, doesn’t exist, as the entire thing is offline. I have a feeling this will be a long night….

UPDATE: Nearly three hours after launch time, the site started to come to life. There seem to be glitches with browsers that are not fully current, especially IE and Firefox. Note that the “shop” key on the US site takes you to the duetscherock shop, which, unless something has changed, does not ship to the US.
