This url:

http://api.finance.xaviermedia.com/api/2009/11/18.xml

currently generates a 404. Whereas these

http://api.finance.xaviermedia.com/api/2009/11/17.xml
http://api.finance.xaviermedia.com/api/2009/11/19.xml

work fine.

I appreciate the free API, and that this gives me no reason to bitch, but I'll just say that if the API isn't reliable, it's not worth doing.

Thanks for all the effort in any event. You guys are doing some nice stuff for developers everywhere.

Just ran a historical series request. 2009-11-09 through 2009-12-12 all failed.

I just ran this once, but I tried the 2009-11-18 several times through the day with the same result.

Not sure why they all failed, but I've tested them all less then 2 minutes ago and they worked.

Do you get a DNS error, time out or just zeros as values for the currencies?

That original URL is failing again, as are most of January so far.

Disappointed no-one has responded to this.

Note that the failure is always a 404 error.

I'm locking this topic now since:

1) the 18th of November is working

2) January is working since since 1st-3rd are not banking days

3) I have responded, and if that makes you disappointed or if you wanted someone else to respond instead I'm sorry for that
