Guardian API

The Guardian Open Platform is the suite of web services that make it possible for our partners to build applications with the Guardian. We've opened up our platform so that everyone can benefit from our journalism, our brand, and the technologies that power guardian.co.uk. The Open Platform currently includes two products, the Content API and the Data Store. is a mechanism for getting Guardian content. You can query our content database for articles and get them back in formats that are geared toward integration with other internet applications. The Data Store is a collection of important and high quality data sets curated by Guardian journalists. You can find useful data here, download it, and integrate it with other internet applications.

All calls to the API fail today: http://guardian.apimaps.org/points.php
Fatal error: Call to undefined method DB_Error::query() in /var/www/guardianapi/lib/data.php on line 21
It looks like the load from PW and other sources took down their database.
