You're right—seems file uploads worked with 8XP and unencrypted (OS 3.0.1) TNS files, which get detokenized and parsed, but not plain-text source code :P Fixed.

Thanks for the bug report!

Supported filetypes are 8XP (protected or unprotected), TNS (unencrypted only), and plain-text.

I was reminded of this topic by this topic: http://ourl.ca/119725
And bbify literally went offline 5 minutes after I started using it.
And now it's back online.
I'm on a free server that seems to have gotten worse over time. Looking for a new host soon.
I assume that Omnimaga hosting (like ASM Unsquisher) isn't an option?

(Also you might want to backup your site and tools more often since your hosting is getting worse and worse. No one knows if it won't shut down tomorrow or at any other moment without warning)

I'm looking into getting a paid host of my own, preferably a VPS.

You're completely right that the uptime's getting worse. 000webhost "guarantees" 99% uptime, and their official "independent" uptime tracker at http://www.serviceuptime.com/users/monitoring.php?S=6c8ef11fcca35bab3d971cdce3d7179b shows well above 99%. But notice how they stopped keeping track of uptime last year (specifically doomsday). Meanwhile, Pingdom tells me my uptime's been dropping steadily, and now it's around 75% >:(

On the other hand, I'm taking backups every night straight into my Google Drive, and one of my flash drives is a mirror of the complete site, so data loss isn't a problem.

Yeah, hosting providers try to lure new customers by offering really good uptime and sometimes speed, then once the customers have settled in for a while, they slowly degrade the performances then eventually offer more expensive plans to those who are no longer satantified by the performances. Then they just shut down their free hosting entirely.

The other scenario is when they offer a pool of resources just for free hosting, but that are split between customers. If the company doesn't upgrade, it really gets slow when there are 1000 customers.
