[bioontology-support] API access to NCBITAXON

holidays distractions actually sounds good, sorry to bother you at this time.

I did try again and it worked - for a few hours. I got my job nearly completed but than the very same error appeared again. I am getting in right now. It seems the system is up for some time and then down again. You described it yourself, first you get the error, then it is gone - and then it comes back.

I will continue to try. Thanks for your efforts!
