Execution Often Disrupted by Difficutlies Connecting to Target Computer

Anonymous created an issue

Firstly thankyou very much for creating these tools. I have spent a most enjoyable week playing around with them.

This issue is probably completely out of your control. It took me a long time to complete a run due to the program continually stopping and giving the following error message:

urlopen error [Errno 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

I guess that you were aware that there would be issues like this as you gave clear instructions on how to restart the process which I followed.

At first I thought it ran better at what I presume are off-peak times for the NLA systems - late at night and early in the morning. Then I had a much more successful go at it during business hours on Tuesday, so I don't think my theory holds.

    Yes, there's not a lot I can do about what's happening at the NLA end. I do know however that they've been rolling out an upgrade of Trove this week, so it could just be a matter of bad timing. I managed a 3000+ article harvest the other week in one run without problems.
