Update: 6/29/09: Amazon is having ANOTHER major outage. The website starts to load, but does funky stuff with weird graphics like this:
This is not the first major outage by Amazon, and certainly not the last. They had outages back in 2004, and a big one in 2008.
Original outage on Nov 8,2004
Amazon is having an outage. It appears to be down all day long. Robert Hashemian, our webmaster and columnist within Internet Telephony Magazine brought it to my attention
Even many of the international Amazon sites are down. I could only get to the Japanese Amazon website. I tried 3 different ISPs and Amazon is offline on all 3.
Let's see how fast this outage news spreads. Post a comment if you can't get to it either.
Another Amazon outage.that apparently is only affecting some users in some geographic regions.
In Connecticut I'm getting this error "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" when trying to get to amazon.com.
