Just got a message from Eric Haskins pointing out that www.amazon.com is having troubles.  Surfing there indicates:

"We're sorry!

An error occurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured, we're already working on the problem and expect to resolve it shortly.
If you were trying to make a purchase, please check Your Account to confirm that the order was placed.

We apologize for the inconvenience. "

Looks like my wife's one-click-shopping habit (a.k.a., crack for geeks) will be on hold for a bit.

Interesting, fellow handlers Swa "I'm software, not human" Frantzen mentions that the various country Amazon.com sites are down too, except for Japan.

UPDATE:

Now, amazon.com looks OK from a whois lookup at www.internic.net (record points to Network Solutions) and from a Network Solutions whois lookup. 

I just now checked, and they seem to be back up...  so, intermittent problem fixed?  For now...  It's not the end of the world.
