Dear Medlibbers,

I am at my wit's end.  For three months now (yes, three months) I have
been getting a Server 500 error whenever I try to access PubMed.  I have
tried a million work-arounds.  Searches are taking forever, if I can do
them at all.  It appears from the error message that the problem is
originating from NLM, but I told my IT department that if this was the
case, a million librarians would be on fire!  First they thought it was
our Hospital's firewall, then they thought it was a Microsoft patch that
had been installed Hospital-wide.  They are still working on it, but
there is a huge gap of time between each tested theory.  I cannot even
tell you how frustrating it is to get an error message every other

If you have ever, ever had this problem and you have found *the*
solution, please let me know...and please, don't tell me to clear my
cache, lower my privacy settings, or check out my proxy server.  Been
there, done that.
