Since yesterday morning get.hist.quote in tseries has not been connecting to
yahoo 90% of the time. Is this a problem or change at Yahoo's end?


Example of R output...

unable to connect to 'chart.yahoo.com' on port 80.
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method = method) : 
        cannot open URL
