Xamarin Activation issues

I've been having Activation Issues with the Xamarin products numeral times now, although it has become better over time. Today it seems like Xamarin is having issues with their servers. My Xamarin products worked well yesterday. Now when I try to start VS and open up a Xamarin project it tries to call home to Xamarin and Activate my product... Why is it necessary to call home every time I open up a Xamarin project?


Below you see a screenshot of the log, telling me that there is an Internal Server Error when contacting Xamarin Activation Server.


And here is a screenshot of their store page, which just dumps source code.

Why is it that when Xamarin has problem with their servers, I have to stop developing my products and wait till they fix that?

To your information I am running the latest Xamarin Alphas where it is said that these issues should be fixed and should not require Internet connection once activated. I see something different.

Xamarin, please fix these issues. I love your products, except your Activation :(
