web site is struggling to keep up with the load as thousands of new iPhone and iPod Touch users try to download their purchases to their new devices. The owners of eReader say on the FictionWise mailing list:
As many of you probably know, the ereader.com server is absolutely
getting crushed right now as thousands of iphone users try to download
their past purchases all at once. We're working to try to tune this
better over the weekend, but the fact is, our infrastructure just can't
handle everyone trying to download every book they ever purchased in the
past ten years all on the same day!
We ask for your patience. The initial crush will die down hopefully in a
day or two, and we'll try to offload some of the traffic to other
servers as quickly as possible.
