Excessive Internal Server Errors

I created a C# app that uses the WundergroundLib.dll to make requests.  Over the past nine days, I have made 161 requests, 59 of which have resulted in errors.  As you can see from the counts below, most are the generic "Internal Server Error" message.  I find it hard to swallow a 37% failure rate.  The calls that failed were for hourly forecasts, given a weather station code.  The errors were very rarely for the same location.  Is there a better way to approach the API that would more consistently return the forecasts?      

Error Message: Count
Gateway Time-out: 2
Internal Server Error: 50 
Not Found: 4 
Service Unavailable: 3

Apparently there is no way to talk to these people at Wunerground.  I paid my $10. CAN NOT get my email verified, never get a code via email, email is not verified.  I think it is just another damn scam.

The best advice I can offer is to dump this sorry ass company and stop torturing yourself trying to get acceptable results.  There a several well ran weather companies that offer good solid API's that do not fail every day.

Apparently you are right.  Wish something could be done to stop their scam though.
