And now I cannot download from yahoo at all (it worked until 20 min ago):

trying URL 'http://chart.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=AAPL&a=5&b=01&c=2012&d=4&e=12&f=2017&g=d&q=q&y=0&z=AAPL&x=.csv'
download error, retrying ...

1: In download.file(url, destfile, method = method, quiet = quiet) :
  cannot open: HTTP status was '502 Connection refused'

Is it just me?
Thanks! Alec

As to Yahoo changes recently, this thread in the pipermail

I have been hitting some intermittent limits (i.e., failures
to get replies and getting error returns instead) at Yahoo
Finance as to multiple inquiries from the same IP the last
week or so
