API access blocked, max retries exceeded

Dear developer and users,

I was using pymatgen to do some phasediagram calculations. Today I got an error from the API stating that

pymatgen.matproj.rest.MPRestError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘www.materialsproject.org’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /rest/v2/query (Caused by <class ‘socket.gaierror’>: [Errno -2] Name or service not known)

I guess this is because I tried to access API too many times these days. I know this improper and will try to save the entries first and load locally in my future use.
Anyways, anyone knows how long does it take to get the sever start accepting my IP again? Does it resume automatically or am I permanently blocked? (Hope not so…)
