No, you just have to keep trying. Remember, like you, there are 100's of people using C4C. It also depends on where your C4C happen to check when the date actually becomes available in comparison to other people. For example, if the date becomes available 5 second after your C4C checked you won't know for 25 seconds while other people whose C4C checked 25 seconds ago will know in 5 seconds. I have seen dates go so fast that even the ECFMG's Step 2 CS Availability software is unable to cope thereby you won't get the automated email from them if the spot goes very fast.
I hope C4C can update the software to check every 5 seconds now.
OR you can set up 5 computers at 5 second intervals.
