Yes, seems down here. I was browsing there only a few minutes ago. Wonder if the Christmas shoppers have overloaded it & sent it crashing.

Btw, you can check if any site is down or if it's just you at click here. G

Down. That's gotta be a first for Amazon?
I wonder if that's the DDoS attack that's been talked about recently?

I have some sympathy for Assange. But he maybe went too far. He does not deserve DefCon Whatever from the States. Neither do I agree with bringing sites down.
