      Description

      The security server just was down, resulting in a login error like:

      Generating Developer Certificate and Private/Public Keys...
      ERROR  | <html><body><h1>503 Service Unavailable</h1>
      No server is available to handle this request.
      </body></html>
      

      Could we handle this so that it would say something less cryptic like:

      Generating Developer Certificate and Private/Public Keys...
      ERROR  | Our server security.appcelerator.com is down (503). We are already on it will be back soon. Try again in a couple of minutes.
      

      The above would:

      • Confirm its an error on our side and they can just wait instead of trying to see what's wrong on their end.
      • Include the exact host in the message so that if they report it we know which one it is (VPCs etc)
