MANILA, Philippines – The website of the 2012 Palarong Pambansa bogged down last Monday, leaving those who were planning to watch the games online disappointed.

“Gusto ko pong manood pero wala. Hindi naman po ako makapunta doon kasi naulan,” said Amiel Alinac, who has been trying to access the Palaro livestream since Monday.

According to Vangie Padilla of the Committee on Information and Communications, the website’s server crashed last May 6 after the site got over two million hits.

“Ang sabi ng host, allow us 10-14 hours to transfer all your files doon sa dedicated server,” Padilla said.

In the meantime, people who want to watch the games can do so through U-Stream.

“Naka-stream s’ya sa ibang server. Ibang host ang server nung streaming channel. So buhay pa rin s’ya, mula Day 1 hanggang ngayon,” Padilla said. -- Report from Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News Northern Luzon
