A brief explanation, for those who may be experiencing sudden withdrawal from Deals woot, or feeling as though everyone is ignoring you (we're not), there's a bit of a technical glitch in the internet, and it looks like the clouds are busted for certain folks, just right now.
The technical issue is that UltraDNS seems to have gone belly up around 4:44, which means that as the DNS information for Deals fades out of the DNS cache for people, the site becomes unreachable. The Amazon Cloud (yes, it's true, Deals is cloudy) is apparently dependent directly or indirectly on the DNS servers that are supplied by UltraDNS. There's a lot more, but I can see the eyelids drooping for some of you.
Hope that helped.
