Denny’s Website Gets Grand Slammed

A quick note – two Sundays ago, there was some sort of football game. And everyone watched it. So people paid a lot of money to run commercials. Which a lot of people watched.

For example, Denny’s offered a free Grand Slam breakfast in their SuperBowl commercial. Which would have been great. Except that the traffic load resulting from the ad overwhelmed the servers hosting Dennys.com.

The moral of the story: When inviting 100 million people to your party, prepare for the possibility that they might actually show up.
