Thanks for the update Roan!

Okay, I've tested it.  Uploading the file returned a blank white screen
with the message, "Down for upgrade, check back soon".  There appears to
be no record of the file.

Also, here's some minor fixes needed, if someone is interested in
working on them:

* On the 'Your page' screen, change:  'any remixes yet' to 'any clipart

* On the Submit Files page, remove the 'Submit a remix' box; I don't
  think that necessarily applies for us.  Yes, someone could "remix"
  clipart into a new image, but there's not really any reason to
  distinguish between such an image and a "regular" one.

* On 'Submit a Clip Art' page
  the 'BPM Tempo' field should be removed.

* When looking at the New Uploads:
  - The thumbnails don't appear (for any image)
  - Clicking on the download button brought up the svg okay
  - Remove the 'I Sampled This' button
  - Remove the 'no one has sampled this' box

* Clicking on the Clip Art tab on the top right, it shows a listing of
  available clipart.  
  - Removed the right column with the 'I Sampled This' links and so
  - Replace with thumbnail(s) of the image

* Remove the 'Remix' tab
