What defines the use of these states?  Say you have a request for a web page 
with some 20 images on it.  The server is serving these out as individual 
files or 'hits'.  Do each of these 20 images count as a single 'state' or is 
the web page request as a whole considered one 'state'?

Or you could follow the dev instructions on how to build a custom
image, and change to option for maximum states to something a little
higher, say 200,000. Or does anyone have any suggestions why that
wouldn't work?
