Sorry, the link seems to fail for a variety of reasons; sometimes an incognito browser helps, as does not being on VPN.  Can you pls let me know if either solved the issue?

With an Incognito Browser and without it! (I had the http 500 as well. Seems like you get the 403 the first time and then when you retry you get a 500)


I just get "error making http request: Socket closed" in any mode or browser.
