Strange thing yesterday. I was hapily scraping when suddenly it stopped with a "Database unreachable" message. I think it was time to stop, but today I have the same error.

I tried upgrading to the last plugin (was on .89, got .91), tried to log into CV.com, got some warnings (havn't log for a long time), even changed my API key. Same thing.

Tried to run CR in debug mode, and CVS outputs this:

======> scraping next comic book: 'C.O.W.L. v02 - The Greater Good (2015) (Digital) (DR & Quinch-Empire).cbz'
trying to match this book automatically...
ERROR OCCURRED CONTACTING COMICVINE. RETRYING...

So I thought: Mmmm, error 403, strange. Then I copied the URL above, pasted it in Chome (and replace the "..." by my API key, and it works.

And now, I am puzzled.

Have not noticed that there already have a thread about this.

Anyway, it works again, so I guess the 24h ban is lifted.
