MELTDOWN AT GLASTONBURY: We've already said what we think the answer to Glasto's sale woes could be, but of course, it's Michael Eavis who gets to decide what happens in 2005. He's already thinking:

"The internet site went down in the night - the system overloaded. So we will need more equipment there next year.
We can improve the software, definitely - but is it a good thing to sell them all out in one hour?
We could have sold them out last night in five minutes. I'd rather string it out a bit."

Eh? Is he seriously suggesting that it's in some way better for people to have to sit up all night, pressing redial or throwing their eMac out the window in frustration as it stops the tickets from selling out too quickly? And what does he propose for next year, then? Only putting up tickets for sale in bunches of one thousand, thereby crashing the Aloud server one hundred and thirteen times? This doesn't seem to make any sense at all.
