Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I haven't been able to make any connection since 1pm Eastern. Don't know before that. All I can get is a "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" message. All other websites seem fine.
I get this too:
Http/1.1 Service Unavailable
It's now giving me this:

We apologize for the inconvenience.
There are 4 shoe merchants at Commission Junction that just sent out an email that they're experiencing a botnet attack and they're taking their sites down while some preventative measures are put in place and they hope to be back up within a week.

Shawn White, Keynote's director of external operations, says an error in the configuration of the Web site might have caused the shut down.
White says another reason might have been be server overload, but he says Amazon has a history of being able to handle large loads of visitors....White says the Web site was back up to 60 percent capability around noon.
