Spark’s is a fantastic and brilliant idea – a crowd funding platform, and Spark pays the transaction fees.

There is a slight problem with the website:

Every time a campaign gets a little media attention (take today’s Herald story), the website crashes!   You would think that in the core design of the hosting for the site, they would have realised that some campaigns will receive huge visitor numbers in a short period of time.

Maybe they need to look at Amazon Web Services for hosting!
