CensusFail: That's an hour of my life I'll never get back

So how did Census night go for you?

It certainly wasn't a good night for the people running the show, who now say the reason for the meltdown was an overseas hack.

In the Clarence Valley the collapse of the network got a mixed response from our readers.

There were the angry ones, the 'told you so's', those of you who did it way in advance, others who had the paper back-up and the comedians.

Here are some of our favourite comments and memes from last night's #Censusfail

Mitch Day: Oh my god I have just received an email from census saying I will be fined $180 because their servers can't handle 16 million logins at once .... Never saw that coming!

Tammy Shorn Kippax: Yep, half fill in a form, can't save, it logs you out, you have to start again. Typical Govt run operation ... useless. I show no suprise. After all the experts on TV telling us this won't happen ... it did.

 

 

Gabby Cavanagh: I filled out the entire form, error message to submit. Called the number given. Said to try again tomorrow. Pressed save and exit. Error message and couldn't save. Absolute joke.   Jennifer Maddison: I started my Census at 6.49pm, completed and submitted by 7.05pm. No drama at all.   Paul Hewitt: Back to the future and do the paper form, makes you wonder about technology doesn't it?  
  Sharon Cavanagh: Can't beat the good old way.   Amanda Cerise Ryder: Not to mention the 1.5 hours to complete the form before not being able to submit grrr...   Sharni Wren: I'm just going to do the paper form.   Helz Belz: Census 2016 ... Computer says no.
