    Angry LEH site not working

    Nothing like leaving it to the last minute, but trying to get my LEH's in this evening and the GD website doesn't work. Just get HTTP error 503, Service Unavailable.

    Got screwed out of booking campsites over and over in the Shuswap because of useless government sites earlier this week, and now this. WTF

    Deadline is midnight tonight. I don't set the timelines, but it's reasonable to expect the service to be available up until the deadline.

    You totally missed the point. Anything before the deadline is "on time", but the website is completely inaccessible.

    A ton of sites go down when there are a ton of people trying to use it at the same time not just government sites. Happens every year with the LEH site on the last night as guys scramble.

    Worked great on Tuesday night when I did mine.

    Re: LEH site not working

    I'm less upset about not getting my LEH's in than the seemingly "do-nothing" approach to managing these services that we all pay for. I was just going to apply for some low-odds Kamloops draws anyways, so likely nothing lost and I have a few extra bucks in my bank account.

    This isn't surprise traffic... opening and closing dates are set by the people managing the service, but nothing is done to ensure that the services we are forced to use and pay for can actually handle the demands reasonably expected to be placed on them. How many BC residents could possibly be online at 11:30 pm trying to enter their LEHs? And the system crumbles with no server scaling. And this is meant to provide services for 5 million BC residents?

    The online camping reservation system has always been overloaded when it opens, so what was the solution? Outsource and rollout a bug-laden, piss poor replacement system, do absolutely nothing to improve it or get it ready for re-opening for months while COVID had all the parks closed, and then watch it crash and burn on day 1. Your tax dollars at work!

    Rant over, I'm going to bed. Good luck with your LEH's everyone!
