Servers and networks

What's up with this country's infrastructure? 
Yesterday my attempt to buy World Series tickets was thwarted by a server crash, and today my attempt to call my brother in San Diego is met with an operator's recording saying, "all circuits are busy" (due to the fires, I suppose). I thought these systems were designed to handle day-to-day use and exponential surges in activity.
