Multiple API calls
wrote on 2012-12-31:
I am still quite happy with your service!
After using it now several month, I received the first time the exception "Multiple API calls not allowed".
I guess the limit is one call at time and I understand why you limit the number of calls. Obviously I would like to suggest to raise the limit to e.g. 3-5 calls. I do not expect many parallel calls, but 2-3 calls are realistic.
Independent of raising the limit, I would like to suggest to include some kind of IPS like Semaphores etc. to avoid this error already in the library. I have written my own wrapper now, but having it in the official library (mayby as optional parameter) would be great!
PS: I am using the PHP lib.

thanks for the feedback and suggestions. If you want to avoid the 503 error it is perfectly ok to sleep() for a few seconds and then resend the failed request again:
