Hello I have the following issue with the requests to premium account. I know my credentials and url are valid because most of the times I'm getting the correct results back, but once in a while I'm getting

 {"status":{"message":"Please provide a valid username for the GeoNames Premium Web Service or use the free server. Thank you for your understanding.","value":10}}

The URL I'm using is:

Any help or explanation why this happens would be much appreciated. It's quite impossible to write a good client code having this error appearing sporadically.

Best Regards
