Obamacare website issues?

Question by Tim: Obamacare website issues?
I’m confused, if one of the main issues for the obamacare website was a high number of hits, then why didn’t they just do it state by state?
When apple updates it’s IOS, sometimes they won’t even let you begin downloading because there are so many people crowding the website…but at the end of the day I still get my update…

Best answer:

Answer by Sarah
Each state does have their healthcare exchange, and you can go to your state’s ACA website if you want to avoid any delay. However, if you choose to go to healthcare.gov during busy times, you can expect to have more of a delay.

Aesop’s Fables Predict Issues About Obamacare and Introduce 12 Marketing Tips That Can Spark the Profits of Small Businesses

Daytona Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Aesop tells about a blind man who could identify animals (issues) by touch. When a cub (Obamacare) was put in his hands, he responded, “I am not sure whether it’s the cub of a wolf or a fox, but this I do know — never trust it in a sheepfold. According to Aesop, “Evil tendencies are early shown.” Dr. Betsy Kruger, warns that owners and entrepreneurs fear what Obamacare’s regulations will do to their business.

According to Aesop, a weasel (Obamacare) clears the house of mice (uninsured people) but also kills chickens (strips insurance from others) so the weasel (Obamacare) should die (lose funding). Aesop’s moral is that good should outweigh the bad. Kruger wants legislators to logically assess the benefits and costs from implementing Obamacare.

An Aesop fable describes how a camel (us) responded to a camel driver (Obamacare), “Why do you ask what I prefer when all ways are level?” Aesop’s moral: Why pretend when there is no choice? Kruger believes that people who prefer their current health insurance will be forced onto Obamacare.

Aesop predicted that a dog (Obamacares) nips at horses (businesses) so they can’t eat their corn (earn profits). Aesop advises, “Live and let live.” Kruger expresses how Obamacare rregulations are decreasing profits.

Aesop conveys how flies (the disenfranchised) swarm a honey pot (entitlements) and get stuck. The flies complained, “How stupid! We threw away our lives for an hour of pleasure.” Aesop surmises, “The greedy never know when they have had enough.” Kruger encourages the government to give a hand up, not a handout.

Likewise, Aesop’s fables refer to marketing strategies. They inspired 12 marketing tips for owners and managers of small businesses. Aesop’s Rules” summarize marketing strategies for profiting from the 80/20 rule.

For example, an Aesop Fable about a lioness and a vixen conveys that “quality, not quantity counts.” This fable inspires the primary Aesop Rule: Focus on quality. This rule coaches small businesses to target high-quality customers, rather a quantity of less profitable customers.

Her tips coach small businesses to describe, delight, and duplicate the top 20% of their customers. They advise entrepreneurs to delight them with products and services, promote to them with empathy, and to reward key customers, rather than complainers. Small businesses can duplicate their key customers by targeting similar prospects. Dr. Kruger predicts, “When prospects become highly profitable new customers and replace less profitable customers, your profits will quadruple.”

Each of her marketing tips is a rule for profiting from the 80/20 rule. According to scientists, the 80/20 rule predicts that the top 20% of customers will generate 80% of the profits. Scientists confirmed that key customers will be 16 times more profitable than other customers. Dr. Kruger believes that “Aesop’s Rules” will spark the profits of a small business.

The 80/20 rule is the foundation of Dr. Kruger’s upcoming book, “Aesop’s Rules: Timeless Marketing Strategies for Entrepreneurs.” All 12 of Aesop’s Rules are posted on her website. “Aesop’s Rules” inspire entrepreneurs to grow their profits with the 80/20 rule.

Business Expert Press published her first book, “Top Market Strategy: Applying the 80/20 Rule” in 2011. Marketing professors around the world are adopting her book for their marketing classes. Barry Silverstein praises her college supplement as a “profit-generating tool.”

In summary, BetsyKruger.com provides marketing tips to entrepreneurs and small business owners. Her upcoming book, “Aesop’s Rules: Timeless Marketing Strategies for Entrepreneurs” coaches them to create action plans that will spark their profits.

GitHub restores Mozilla-Central repository after temporarily shutting it down over fileserver issues

github 520x245 GitHub restores Mozilla Central repository after temporarily shutting it down over fileserver issues

The GitHub repository Mozilla-Central and all of its forks were disabled yesterday with no explanation. We got in touch with both GitHub and Mozilla after the problem was pointed out on Hacker News, and it has now been resolved.

“The Mozilla-Central repository has been restored after a temporary problem prompted Github to shut it down,” a Mozilla spokesperson told TNW in a statement. “This community-supported repository is not used for building any Mozilla products. All Mozilla products are built from Mozilla’s servers which are called hg.mozilla.org and git.mozilla.org. At no time was any of Mozilla’s production infrastructure impacted by this Github action.”

The issue was first pointed out as a submission on Bugzilla in the hopes of tracking down the root cause, and ensuring that the production replacement repositories would not run into the same issue. GitHub support responded at the time with the following information:

Sorry about that – our ops and systems folks are taking a look now, but it looks like the size and particularly unique nature of mozilla/mozilla-central are causing fileserver issues for us at the moment. The team is looking at options to resolve this and we’ll follow up as soon as we have more information for you.

We have also contacted GitHub for more information. We will update this article if we hear back.
