I Crashed The US Treasury Server
So, does this link work for you? If not, I guess they decided that I"m trying to mount a DoS attack, which is ridiculous, but I have had similar problems before with Treasury. I used to have a program that downloaded them, but I had to stop using it because they get hysterical if you download a bunch of files in succession.
I have a messed up extract file and I need to rebuild it to check it, and my backup is too old (the good copy - I have a recent copy, but it is messed up too).
If I have to use a proxy to get US tax data, I'm going to be really, really mad. And my shoulder still hurts, so I really don't need this tonight.
Maybe start keeping your own local versions of the back copies? I have access to an ftp server if you'd like me to download as many as I can and let you get them that way. Let me know.
