Dear R People:

In library(its), there is a command priceIts.

There is a problem with this command.  It is returning an error message:

> ibm1 <- priceIts(instrument="ibm",start="1998-01-01",quote="Open")
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method = method, quiet = quiet) : 
        cannot open URL `http://chart.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=ibm&a=0&b=01&c=1998&d=5&e=30&f=2004&g=d&q=q&y=0&z=ibm&x=.csv'
In addition: Warning message: 
cannot open: HTTP status was `404 Not Found' 

This has been working fine until tonight.

Has anyone else seen this, please?
thanks in advance!
