Pretty annoying and seems like the sign up problem was avoidable.
I can see your point, but this would never be avoidable regardless. They could have said "Sign up all week," but people still would have started doing it that very first day.
I think it will get worse as the day goes on with people signing up once work and school is over. I don't see any big deal between signing up today or the end of the week. I just did it just to do it. But if it had gotten as bad as where you are, I would have simply waited.
BTW, the site had timed out for me a bunch of times to. I just kept on trying until I got through.
