Problem updating

PB had a problem updating
[list.blocklist.com]

The other lists all finished and then the progress bar froze on that one (which happened to be the last in the list window).
Sometimes it just froze with no further information, sometimes it said "84%", Once it said "error contacting URL".
In all I tried half a dozen times and had to abort each time.

These are my concerns:
is PB blocking anything while an update is frozen like that?
after I hit 'abort' there was no "generating cache" (or whatever it usually says)

Thanks, but both URLs work.
My concern is whether PB continues to work properly while the update process is hung up and whether the cache is built even when no progress bar appears.

Hm, that's actually a good question - could you post your peerblock.log so we could take a look?  It should be, however from the sounds of things it doesn't sound like it's operating as it should be in this case...  sad smiley

The log is attached.
I'm fairly sure that my problem report (above) was not too long after the events, and it appears that there was a silent crash between
[4/19/2010] [14:15:08.703] and
[4/20/2010] [03:00:41.095]
(unfortunately it was so long ago that I don't remember).

Somewhat later (before and after [4/20/2010] [16:12:57.812]) some log entries look quite odd.
