Is there a problem?

I have a high speed dial up and I still can't get onto the scoreboard. I think this site sucks!!!!!!!!

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

Frim the site:

Number of visitors explodes

The number of hits on the MasterCard German Open Website literally exploded today. With 16,7 mil. hits, the servers were simply overloaded. This lead to the situation that the pages were unavailable for nearly half an hour. Please excuse this mishap. We did indeed calculate with a great run on the Website and an increase in hits, but it was not planned that the Internet would develop into the primary source of information for the tournament. We now hope that the "new" servers will withstand tomorrow's rush and the users will continue to be able to quickly gain access our pages.

didn't they do research and knew that the tourney would be in GER and all the top players are from other countries and therefore will be having fans looking in on scores and so much more?....OH well!!!

The website of Warsaw might be the best of tier 2 tournaments.
And also better than many tier 1 tourments' site.
Better than the Berlin one for sure !

another livescore at eurosport:
http://www.eurosport.com/home/pages/..._Evt5485.shtml

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"
