I've been defending Gox pretty much the whole time, but this is starting to drive me crazy.  MagicalTux hasn't posted anything on the forum since the 21st.  It should have been obvious to me when they admitted their deadlines were just there to get people off their back, that they didn't take the notion of a timely and orderly restoration of service very seriously.  :-/

Are you a programmer, and have you ever had to release a software?

We sell software and we test it before we promise it will work...

This is incredibly painful for me to watch.

Just imagine for a second that you were a brilliant mathematician, you eat, shit and sleep math.

One day you see a big gathering, and someone has been chosen at random to answer a math question, and they will win untold fame and fortune.
The question is fun, if a little simple, but you have to squirm as you watch this nincompoop fumble around and fuck it up.

Guys like me who love servers, server architecture and scalability arguments, dream of days like this.

We love to overengineer even when it is not necessary (we try not to).

this is a no brainer, a quality problem.
If i knew that on date x, time y, that i was going to have n users hitting my server all at once, this would be an easy task.

It would be fun, it would go smoothly, I would have a plan.

I can only think the guys at MtGox are either grossly incompetent or incredibly greedy (they still have all this stuffed on to some box under their desk).



Torturous...





Honestly..  you realize WHY this is such a fuck up...


This is a LACK A PROFESSIONALISM AND SKILL SET!!!

With all the fucking money you guys have, god hire some REAL HELP! AND GET THIS FUCKING SERVER OUTTA YOUR GRANDMAS BASEMENT!

Dear Mt.Gox

I don't know how your server is gonna handle about 5,000 requests/min, but that's not my problem... oh wait.. it is.

Then, at least, please let us put in open orders so I can freakin go to sleep after staying up till morning for this.

What I don't understand is, why do they keep handing out deadlines just to ditch them minutes later? You want to keep the maximum amount of users annoyed, tied to their screen and constantly refreshing your site and this forum?

First timelimit not met, second one created right after, also not met. Now again without any Time on when it will be back up??

There's no point putting another deadline on their site; no-one will believe it.

Better all along to just say it'll be ready when it's ready.

not sure how much time ive wasted now being ready and waiting every time an opening was scheduled.

Yep, time is money, how much has all of this GOXATION cost us?  If Marc has the funds in interest bearing accounts somewhere My guess is that hes made money the whole time the site has been down....something to to tune of $10,000 USD If my conservative math serves me correctly. That is just wrong Gox. Disburse interest payments to your fed up clientele!

Show us the money!

Yes.  And I sympathize with how difficult it is to predict how long a product will take to produce, and then push it on time.  However, I sympathize less and less with their PR.  If they gave us a worst-case launch date to start with (say, next Sunday), then they could have shifted the date forward as their estimates improved instead of backward.  It's cowardly to just tell us what we want to hear when they know there's a 90% chance it'll wind up being a lie.

Is there any chance they made a typo and actually meant "Jun 27th 15:30 GMT " ?

I've been programming for close to two decades. The issue here isn't the amount of time it takes to test . . . it's the piss poor planning and communication.

Why are we all here 80 minutes after the first communicated launch time and 50 minutes after the revised launch time STILL WONDERING WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

The feeling is mutual.

Im starting to think this Goxation is humorous to the gox.

Its like an asshole teasing a puppy with a biscuit...here you go little fellow,  moves biscuit towards puppy.....no, no, no, no, quickly yanks it up and chuckles.  Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

When you have to wait for IRC groupies to get a message about the site's status.  They don't take their business seriously.  Otherwise updates would be made ahead of time on their support website.
They are sitting on a freaking goldmine . . . and they appear to have nothing but contempt for their users.

Mind-blowing.

And I have nothing but contempt for them.  I'd leave if only the bitcoins I deposited during the crash would show up in my account balance.  Now, even the IRC groupies aren't saying anything.  Usually they are the first to chime in.

It really is mind-blowing.

That is the real problem.  If they would just allow open orders, most of us could put them in and forget about it until the market opened.  If that takes 2 more days, so what?

But right now, we have to sit here and wait.
