The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH -- or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH — or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

Obama’s claim yesterday that there were 21 million hits on the damn, poxed ObamaCare (ACA) Website, healthcare.gov, was another boldface LIE.

He knows it BUT refuses to tell the truth because of the level of fraud and deception involved.

Yes, the Republicans hijacked the Website. That was pretty obvious and the LOGICAL thing for them to do. I do NOT blame them. It was plain to anybody who knew anything about computer systems that this Website was going to be hacked.

So, YOU had build it to perform through the hacks — in particular Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, i.e., flooding the site with BOGUS traffic from automated ‘bots‘, i.e., robotic software. Motherhood and apple pie stuff when designing PROPER, mission-critical applications.

Yes, of course, the GOP PACs paid millions to orchestrate the attacks — which are obviously still going on.

BEST money they have spent in 9 years. At last they are using some brains (though McCain yet again proved that his brain went into retirement 8 years ago when he made that stupid statement about sending Air Force 1 to Silicon Valley to bring programmers back to D.C. — as if today’s systems have to be developed with all the players sitting together).

I estimate that 95% of the traffic is BOGUS.
DoS attacks.

Check the posts. I have been right as of DAY 1.

I was the 1st to call for a Congressional Hearing. They are having it tomorrow.

But, they haven’t called ME to ask what they should be asking.

So you will get inane, idiotic questions that mean nothing and uncover even less.

I will do this for FREE. I will help any Member of Congress with the investigation into this CRIME of the CENTURY.

Remember, I have forgotten MORE about designing large, mission-critical systems than most programmers of today have yet managed to learn — and I say that with utmost humility but sincerity.


GoDaddy E-Mail Slow Right Now. Intermittent Hangs. Yes, It Has Been Slow For A Week Or So.

GoDaddy e-mail problems

Over the last 10 days or so I have noticed 5 to 6 (on average) search queries a day on: “GoDaddy e-mail slow“.

Yes, we had noticed that it was a bit sluggish, but it was only a few minutes ago that it really became an issue for me. Yesterday or day before Deanna complained that her GoDaddy e-mail was so slow that it might as well be down. But, she managed to get what she wanted done.

This morning I encountered some major problems. It was definitely down for a few minutes. Plus it is slow — particularly when it comes to displaying e-mails and logging in.

From my decade and more of experience with GoDaddy e-mail this could be either due to one of two things: capacity problems on the server (processing or bandwidth) OR GoDaddy is yet again being subjected to a ‘Denial of Service‘ (DoS) attack that is slowing everything down. Knowing GoDaddy (as I do) I am fairly sure that they are aware of this problem and will fix it in the next couple of weeks. I will, of course, he monitoring it.

So, this is just a heads up. Best of luck. I know how frustrating this can be.
