If your IT infrastructure is unable to handle all sports fans in Denver trying to buy World Series tickets at precisely 10 AM, please consider a different ticket distribution method. May I humbly suggest assigning a lottery number to everyone who visits your site over, say, a twelve hour period. At the end of that period, you can email winners of that lottery and give them a time window during which they may complete the transaction. At the end of that window, uncompleted ticket transactions may be offered to the next random batch.

Aside: Epiphany's error message was amusing, at least:
"ev14.evenue.net" is not responding.

The connection was lost because the server took too long to respond. The server may be busy or you may have a network connection problem. Try again later.

You should complain that they wouldn't let the city use those terrorism emergency computers for it.
