Hi William

I am very sorry to you (and everyone) that you are experiencing this. We have an unusual load coming on GBIF.org which is causing us some issues, and we are doing all we can to address this.
I hope things will be back to normal later today.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you continue to have issue (trobertson at gbif.org<mailto:trobertson at gbif.org>) after today.

Subject: [API-users] Intermittent outages??

Hi all,

I've noticed some intermittent outages lately, specifically with the occurrences API. I'm trying to query the occurrences API via rgbif for a bunch of taxa in a loop, and I keep getting "Error: 500 - Server error" and I have to restart my loop.

Any idea when the resource will be permanently stable again?
