Can you confirm that the site is working now? I have been seeing some issues communicating with Amazon servers in the back end, but they seem to come and go. Seems to be working now. Right?

not working well. I search "doll" under baby category and it just says "Sit tight, the results will appear momentarily!"

So it seems that I am running into limitations with the number of requests that my server is firing at Amazon on your guys' behalf. As I mentioned several times before, I originally built this tool for my own use and then decided to make it public because why not. This inevitably to abuse -- while most of you guys use it for legitimate household purposes, some users overwhelm the site with tons of requests, I am guessing as part of some kind of moneymaking operation. I myself have not made a single cent from running this site (other than $55 in coffee donations using the link above), so I am actually considering taking it offline if the issues continue. Just wanted to give you all a heads up that this is a possibility, we'll see how things go.

Hi, I may be the cause of this issue, very sorry. Is there any way to get in touch with you? I would love to make some similar to so.cool, but am running into a small issue.

I blocked the IP that was overusing the site, so if you can still get to it it probably wasn't you (unless you switched IPs). You can write to daniel at this domain.

Please do not take the site offline :( it is my favorite site by far! I always use it instead of searching through amazon. I appreciate you and all you do for this site :)
