    Online ordering at http://Tesla.com will now open at 7:30pm Pacific to ensure no server overload. Presentation still at 8:30.



    Looks like they're aware of the hype, and are taking steps to prevent a server crash!

    Tesla is now understanding the impact of this mornings live reservations and are now taking steps to hopefully balance the traffic load as the reveal gets closer. Smart move on their part.

    I'm guessing they are updating them in batches today. But to do that, they likely need to refresh the database, and it locks everyone out for that period of time.

    I think I only have a 50/50 chance of actually getting a reservation into the damn site tonight.

    I still want to see what it looks like before I pull the trigger. Pretty sure I still want it, but want to know for sure. I know..."Oh ye of little faith." :)
