The downtime happened several weeks ago... This is something else.
Is it still happening? Are you behind a firewall? Can you access neocodex.us at the same time you get the error?
Yeah, it's still happening and it just started happening today (I use program manager regularly, and I used it last night). I haven't made any changes to my computer and I have no issues accessing neocodex.us. The error is almost instantaneous after the "downloading updates from neocodex.us" window pops up. Also, @Liesa said she is experiencing the same issue when I posted about the error here: http://www.neocodex....s/#entry1993983
