I have a IRC script for mIRC and a Google Gadget that uses the UD API. Everything worked perfectly untill yesterday. Seems they had a big outage. Now when I try and use my API Key it returns:
SERVER: Invalid key
Since the link to get a new Key is broken it would seem like they really do not wish to support their API anymore. I can't figure out why they would revoke my key for. While my scripts get alot of usage its not THAT many hits for such a big web site....I wonder if all the testing I been doing this last week while creating a gadget has anything to do with it?

Oh well I been thinking about making my own Slang web application. This will push me to do so.
Thanks,
Tony
