Head in the clouds

Our Auction site got plugged on an email from today that goes out to eight million people.

After a little teething trouble caused by underestimating the demand this would put on the servers we are now coping fine. Well enough in fact for me to be planning to stroll out to lunch after I publish this.

The facilities that I dreamed of back in 2008 (see Icons passim) when there was a film about our auctions on the BBC One Show that generated more traffic than we could handle are now in place, so in 2013 Amazon Web Services has saved the day.

You the man, Jeff Bezos!
