notice of webjay bug fix

Hey folks,

I just noticed that webjay was messing up on imported mixter pages, giving the error "maximum tries exceeded." In case you guys saw that and were wondering, this bug is now fixed.

The cause of the bug is that CC Mixter uses the same title for all pages, and webjay has a limit on the number of playlists it will create with the same title. The fix was to up the number.

However, we’ll hit that bug again eventually because I can’t get rid of the limit completely. And really it might be a good idea to have page titles in CC Mixter anyway, because this is good for bookmarks.

yea, this was a by-product of cramming the timeline to coincide with the WIRED publication. I’ll definitely sprinkle page titles around in the next few days.
