The Stupid! It Burns!

Wow. I've rolled out websites in the past and I can tell you that for something this massive, a two day test is .... well "woefully inadequate" is a woefully inadequate description.

As a result, full testing of the site was delayed until four to six days before the fateful Oct. 1 launch of the health care exchanges, the individual said… 
“Normally a system this size would need 4-6 months of testing and performance tuning, not 4-6 days,” the individual said. 
The source said there were “ever-changing, conflicting and exceedingly late project directions. The actual system requirements for Oct. 1 were changing up until the week before,” the individual said.

Of course, that's only the tip of the iceberg on this story.
