Update: Demo server status

I am amazed.

I wasn't expecting this kind of turnout for the little demo I put up. I expected a couple of flipnotes, not four hundred and fifty of them (thanks guys!) It broke a few things:

There's a glitch in the code that isn't separating flipnotes into pages of fifty. That resulted in the server trying to create a page with four hundred flipnotes, which is straining it badly; and when it even succeeds, the DSi can't read because it's too big.

I'm working on something better, so I'd appreciate it if you would stop trying to connect. There were regional issues, related to the DSi trying to get the terms of use for your language. I fixed that.

I'm running the whole thing on a tiny little free VPS server. Somehow, flipnote uploads are still working. I can transfer the existing uploads to the new database. I plan to shut down the demo in a few days.

Please stop trying to connect for now, and share this post around so others know too.

I've made a lot of progress on a better (real) server, mainly in PHP. It will be able to handle the load better and will fix a few things.
