    Who here has successfully signed up for Obamacare?

    I just noticed something, not one person on PH has announced they have successfully signed up for Obamacare....

    I wonder why that is?


    Tenn. TV Station Can't Find Anyone Who Has Successfully Signed Up for Obamacare | The Weekly Standard


    Seems we aren't the only one having difficulty finding someone. lol
    Thanks from Rorschach, Mordent and Greenridgeman

    This reminds me of big-title video game launches where those first few weeks are hell. Slow downs, errors, bandwidth issues and just straight up breaking before all the bugs are worked out. True beta and stress tests have gone the way of the dodo lately with all sorts of websites and video games. This is why deadlines are important. You either set a deadline and test extensively before hand or you keep the deadline open-ended for bugs and alert people that there may be bugs... with an alternate path or timeframe of successful application operation.

    I'm betting you 100 internets that this Obamacare website that has issues is on a server simply incapable of handling the traffic as well as serious coding errors or simply incomplete code (like the secret question page on sign up).

    These issues are awfully familiar and in action on other surfaces like video games, are simply chalked up to incompetence. The tech industry is riddled with incompetence. Ask Sony, Linkedin, PayPal, et al.

    I couldn't sign up for Obamacare, but it looks like I may have already won an X-Box 360!

    This wasn't the question. The search is on looking for one person who has been successful at signing up. given it's supposed popularity surely someone here has signed up.

    First, I suspect only a small portion of our regular membership is required to go to the exchanges and register. Second, I'm certain most of the glitches will be worked out by the deadline at the end of March.
