Hotmail Outage

Hotmail apparently is experiencing a major outage. The message I got at 9:44am ET was:
Server too busy.
We are experiencing higher than normal volume and are therefore unable to service your request at this time. Try one of the following:

 We apologize for this inconvenience.

This is the first Microsoft Hotmail outage that I have seen in quite some time. Guess I'll be using my GMail account this morning.

Further, if you go to www.live.com, Microsoft's highly touted site, you also get this error message. I just went to wwww.microsoft.com and some of the images loaded very slowly. I then headed over to www.msn.com and some of the links are very very slow. DDOS attack on Microsoft? I'll report when I find out more.

Here's the text copy/pasted from my browser:

And here's a screenshot. Click for larger version.

It appears that www.live.com is back up, however, Hotmail still gives the same error message.

Another Hotmail outage. I was in the middle of checking for an important registration email too. :(
