Issues with CTDB Lookups?

I've just had to start re-ripping a load of my CDs back again after the hard drive failure. I've got about 350 to re-rip, previously successfully used CueRipper to do this, with the naming and cover art etc.

I've just spent the last 2 hours tonight trying to make CueRipper recognise CDs i insert - with random success.  If i put a disc in and out 4 or 5 times it sometimes recognises it fine, but most of the time it's reports an unknown CD.  out of interested I checked one of them in musicbrainz and it's there, correct numbers etc.  I then tried using freac as a test - that picks up and recognises every disc - whereas Cuetools simply doesn't.  I've just noticed the Cuetools website is up and down tonight as well - are there issues or do i need to tweak something more on CueRipper (I've tried 2.16 and 2.17)

I also noticed the CTDB is sluggish today. CUERipper and CUETools can only retrieve (replicated and stored) metadata from the CTDB, so your lookup requests may be timing out.
Issue reported.

but most of the time it's reports an unknown CD
Just checked and "timing out" here as well (Unknown Artist - Unknown Title).

Thanks Korth - whatever they did seems to have fixed it - I can get disc details again now.  Cheers!
