Texas agency has Web meltdown from rebate program

The Texas Trade Up Appliance Rebate Program is very popular. So popular in fact that the Web site for the program is crashing from Web user visits!

We are experiencing high volume. $17,638,700 IN REBATES ARE STILL AVAILABLE.
As of 11 a.m. CT, the Web reservation system continues to be temporarily unavailable.

We appreciate everyone’s patience: Our Web site is getting 1,700 hits per second, and our phone lines are receiving about 1,000 calls per minute.

Maybe you will want to wait a little bit before visiting the site.

(Thanks Bob Martin aka "The Accountant to the Stars")
