Here's the error message word for word:

The POST request to http://pdf1.wikimedia.org:8080/mw-serve/ failed (Operation timed out after 3000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received).

Apparently, I'm not alone: There were postings to Wikipedia Help Desk [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Hd#PDF_won.27t_appear] and Village Pump (technical) [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VPT#.22PDF_version.22_option_not_working]

It also seems that other wikis are having the same issue.

Throwoing +shell and Rob's e-mail on this. Seems to still be kinda broken and I can't find anything relevant in the server admin log.
