Southwest website melts down during 2015 annual fare sale

The website has been essentially unusable for 8 hours now. This is one of the worst service outages I have ever seen at southwest.com, and the sale isn't even all that great.

I suppose fares are so absurdly high these days that a merely OK sale brings a lot of buyers. About a month ago, Southwest raised its summer fares on its captive routes sky high. They later raised their autumn fares almost as high. I wasn't the only one holding off on booking until the fares came down to realistic levels.
