NY Times problem

using version 0.8.4.6 to download NY Times without a problem.
This morning I installed 0.8.5.0 update and got error messages trying to get the NY Times.
I reinstalled version 0.8.4.6 and now that version provides the same error message, the details of which follow:

It looks like their javascript apparatus for running the paywall is down too. I'm sure it'll be up again by morning.

Let's hope their "upgrade" doesn't break calibre's recipe.

I suppose you were correct, the times website was down.
Currently, the recipe downloads correctly using v.0.8.50.

Thanks,
