I only managed to access the OIG database by a trans-Atlantic telephone 
call and then doing a download that way.   Took nearly 25 minutes to 
download the giant 1.3 Mb file of Friday's data !   Certainly I know that 
there were major communications problems between Goddard and The Mountain 
last week which meant that Iridium data was very late appearing (and the 
rocket stage, fourth stage shroud and ullage motors have still to appear 
in the database), and it is possible the the Internet problems are 
related to this.
