CAD crashes Canada Post

For those of you like me who waited around until 2pm EDT to buy the CAD books you probably got upset really fast. There was the expectant long load times but after finally getting one each of the two collector editions you probably got a SQL error, over and over and over again. You just had to be one of the first 400 so you would get one of these limited hardbacks.

It appears there were so many requests for these books that the servers for Canada Post crashed and you can see who’s fault it is with this message:

EDIT: 3:40 PM EST – Canada Post has finally admitted that we crashed their servers (yay! go CAD!)

It probably didn’t help that most people like me probably hit refresh 13 thousand times.
