The Map shows the train reversing at the MIPM station - however the timetable does not show a train reversal or a stoppage there. So I guess the map may not be accurate and needs to be updated with the correct route of this train?

In summary - very comfortable journey. The SBC-CAPE Island express arrived at Kollam junction just as we were entering the station, and we got confused at boarded that train in the A2 coach. Luckily the TTE was alert, and he asked us to show our tickets, and then told us were were in the wrong train! So we quickly deboarded, crossed over, and then waited for the CAPE-SBC train :).
The coach was clean and had the newer type toilets (delayed discharge). The only problem was the airconditioning was either freezing or off, there was no middle path. So we froze all night long, and I think will come down with a cough/ cold now courtesy IR.
...
more...

The train managed to catch up the lost time, and then was kept waiting at KJM (where we got down), probably to ensure that the line from Baiyyapanahalli to the City station was not clogged while this train was waiting for an empty platform!

Thanks, glad to document the journey in real time. They had switched off the power pints at night, so my phone got discharged.had to walk to the eog car next to engine,complained there, and after half an hour someone came to turn on the electric points. Then I was able to use the phone again. The train was almost empty after ern.
Reached Kollam at 11.23, made up lots of time just before Kollam.

Regarding Clearing of Tatkal WL vs. GNWL.
I had posted a question a few weeks ago, and that has been archived /blog/post/393216. Hence starting a new thread.
Today's ET had an article on how Tatkal WL is officially given preference in case of an extra coach (/news/post/73872). However it does not clarify what happens when there is no extra coach attached. Is the Tatkal WL always cleared first, and then general RAC/ WL is cleared (if possible)?

Any further thoughts or comments on this? Is it preferable to book a general WL a few months early, or wait for the last day and take a Tatkal WL instead?

If you book only a Tatkal ticket, you may have missed the chance of a confirmation of a General waiting list. Sometimes a General waiting list does get confirmed. So I suppose it depends on what number is your General WL

Profuse apologies for the outage today. Unfortunately, contrary to our own arrogance, our servers were unable to handle the traffic today, and repeatedly went out of service. All attempts to revive were futile. We were left with no alternative but to double the existing networking and computing hardware, to bring the servers up. All of this took 6 hours.
Once again, sorry about this. This was an unscheduled outage, and we shall investigate to make sure this does not happen again.

Time to move to a more scalable architecture I guess - let me know if you guys need any assistance/ review on that front. I would imagine something like Amazon EC2 and the scalability they provide as a potential option.

Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, we do already have a scalable hardware architecture. But hardware does actually have to be added even if it is scalable. That is what we did today.
Amazon EC2 may be used in the future, but only as a backup, since Amazon itself had an outage of 2 days last year, with many prominent companies completely helpless to do anything, waiting for Amazon to fix the issue.
Thanks again.

Just for the information of forum that 1 out of every 3 internet users in the world access a site supported by Amazon atleast once a day. Though Amazon is best known as biggest online retailer but also provides a huge storage space for servers and applications on which hundreds of thousands of websites run.

Absolutely right - need to keep the hardware updated and have enough redundancy and spare capacity built in. I'm not recommending EC2 BTW, just mentioning it as an option that allows for very rapid scaling.
As another anonymous user has mentioned, EC2 might turn out expensive in the long term, and that's very likely the case. However the ability to turn on new instances automatically and in near-real time is pretty good too.
I would imagine you're currently running a virtualized environment with the ability to add new clones

pretty frequently, and thereby allowing the architecture to scale. At least the web front ends can be easily virtualized, though there are pros and cons of doing that at the backend/ DB tier.

On this train, there were no jerks noticed, and even the normal side-side movement while traveling at speed was much lesser. Definitely a more comfortable journey than with the ICF coaches.
