I apologise if you keep getting the message System oversubscribed... I can not afford to run this on a virtual private server (VPS) anymore so I will continue to find ways of reducing the resources it uses so it can run on a standard hosting acount without causing people frustration.
If anyone has any creative ideas (not Amazon ads) for funding a VPS to run this product, please let me know? When I started paying for a VPS I did try Amazon ads (about four years ago), and advertised relevant OE books. Even with 3000 users per day, over about one year, one person bought one book by clicking through the website. This made me around £1.
I could offer relevant and reputable organisations (e.g. educational services or language translation services) a link on the homepage with a little supporting text in return for a donation. If for example 5 organisations pledged £100 in return for this link, that would cover quite a reasonable vps.
If it says please wait 10 seconds, please don't keep hitting the button and getting, wait 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 seconds. I can see people doing this in the logs. All this is doing is keeping the system busy and preventing translations. I'm really sorry I can not remove the code that is producing the System oversubscribed... message.
This is now running on a standard hosting account and to prevent it exceeding it's allowable resource quota I have written code to stop it overloading the machine it is running on. This code is doing it's job and reducing the number of translation requests in a given time period. If I reduce the time period and the number of times you get this message, I risk the product being banned by the hosting provider.
Over the last few years I asked for donations and some people very kindly did contribute. But the contributions were just no-where near enough to fund the VPS. I have been paying for the VPS for about 3 years and put simply I can't afford it even though I do get the satisfaction of seeing the product used. So - I have a produced a version that limits the amount of resource it can consume which hopefully will allow it to run on a standard hosting account (i.e. no VPS cost). Over time I will try and make this better so that it is not so limiting and fewer people suffer the 'System Oversubscribed' message without overloading its allowable use of the hosting it is running on.
Please stay with me - I'm doing my best short of paying for a VPS.
You can only submit one translation request every ten seconds. If the system misbehaves, you can never submit a translation and you continually get the message 'System oversubscribed, please try again in ... seconds' please email me at: email@example.com
This translator finds words with inflected endings, the translator will automatically try different permutations of accents / thorn characters to translate words.
for example if you enter 'þara' it will find 'þára' with an accent over the 'a'.
Old English accents should take the form é not ē . Words can be entered directly including æ þ ð characters EG ofþryccaþ
Alternatively .ae (dot ae) will be substituted with æ, .th with þ, and .dh with ð. So ofþryccaþ could be written of.thrycca.th
