A Word to KNEC

The KNEC website has been down for quite. While the millions of visits may be overwhelming for any server, it's not the reason their website is down. It's not visits but simple php/mysql connection error that has put them out. Something that could that no more than 5 minutes and 2 lines of code to fix. That is just disappointing.
KNEC's Web-Malfunction
This is one of KNEC's busiest weeks, getting someone to prepare your system beforehand should not be that hard. The services people require are not even that much, so am sure getting a web developer is not a problem, if it is; some of us would be willing to help out a cause. It's not cool that year after year, your site never learns. This is my advice, hire web developers to build you a good site. Better even, let them create a solid API for the rest of us to use, and develop applications to share the info elsewhere - relieving your servers. Seriously.
