Yes, people, we’re moving FORWARD! Again. This time with our Healthcare.gov website.
After a month-long hiatus, we gave ourselves an additional 11 hour timeout, just to be safe:
“…two months after its roll out, and on the very day Mr. Obama’s signature legislative initiative was scheduled for reboot, his administration shut down the troubled Obamacare website for an 11-hour period…just hours before it was to be rebooted.
And we are now pleased to report that "HealthCare.gov on December 1 is night and day from where it was on October 1,"
So, in other words, “we have met the goal of having a system that will work smoothly for the vast majority of users.”
Which means that “the site will now be able to support a maximum of 800,000 visitors per day, including a target of 50,000 concurrent visits.” which seems impressive, unless you consider that Amazon can accommodate like a gazillion people at a time, all buying a “whole bunch of stuff.” (UPDATE: Amazon CEO Bezos says they will ship 300 packages/second - creeper ran the numbers and it looks like 90,000 simultaneous shoppers on the site.) Or unless you’re one of the 50,000 trying to register when that 50,001st person tries to sign up. In which case, the system will crash and you’ll have to “try again at a later time.”
Butt I wouldn’t worry too much about that, because Plouffe-Daddy tells us that everything will come clean by 2017. That’s good.
Remember, we can make it “Right” in 2017 if we do our job in 2014 and 2016. Maybe somebody could, please, push the fast forward button.
Because we really can’t wait. Hopefully by then we’ll have our broken system fixed and it will be like “night and day from where it was'” when the lights went out on America.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow when I give you an update on how our
Mexican Spanish language site is progressing.
