This may not be just you. It looks like the user-agent-string.info site is down, which may be causing your problem.
As an alternative, I also have TA-browscap which has similar capabilities, but was more geared towards web analytics. It can be found here:
It does allow (actually require) that you manually download the data file.
I'm afraid not. After the update script downloads the file from the user-agent-string.info site, it uses the pickle module to parse and the serialize the data to the cache file. Can you contact me (there is a contact link on the TA-uas_parser page) so I can get a better idea of your requirements?
If you have a system which is not on a locked down network, you can run the "update_cache.py" script to download the data file. It will run the processing needed to create the cache file in the /bin/ua_cache/ directory. You can then copy the /bin/ua_cache/cache file to the locked down server for use. Let me know if that solution works for you.
We are aware the site is having some issues but either way, we cannot get out of our network and hit it to download what is needed. Is there a way to accomplish this manually??
We have also looked at your TA-browscap app but that is not what we are looking for. We need to break down our user agent strings.
Please advise if there is a workaround.
