Today as I attempted to build an online course, I kept received an error message that the site was experiencing an unexpectedly high number of users. With traffic to the site so demanding, everything began to shut down. Nothing would load. Every single thing I tried to do took an exceedingly long time. And then the system would revert to a prior screen without saving any of my work. System overload. Not enough processing power to accommodate the number of users.
I temporarily abandon my work and turn to other things. With an overloaded system, you can’t accomplish much anyway. The website claimed “degraded performance” today.
Some days are like this. We’re overloaded. It’s time to turn to other things.
