Having trouble downloading. Bluehost.com tells me: This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota

Please contact this site's webmaster.

Wait a few minutes and use your browser's "Back" button or click here to try again.

If you are the webmaster, your account may have gotten this error for one or more of the following reasons:
Your account has used more than its share of the cpu in the past 60 second sliding window.
Your account has too many concurrent processes running simultanously.
Your account has consumed too much memory.
Your site was recently very busy trying to run inefficient scripts.
The solution would be to optimize your applications to use less CPU.
Adding appropriate indeces to your SQL tables can often help reduce CPU.
Using static .html documents instead of painful .php scripts will practically eliminate CPU usage.

Isn't that what the game tells you in the loading screen when starting up the game?
You know: 'exceeding CPU quota....'  :D

sorry about the CPU quota stuff... we're getting more traffic than we expected and kyle is hard at work setting up a new server to better handle the load.  if you get this error it usually goes away after a minute, just wait a bit and try again.
