ebooks.connect.com down?

Is anyone else having trouble getting to the Sony ebook store?
http://ebooks.connect.com/

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong, like using the wrong URL again?

It is down for me too. I hope it does come back up soon. I'll need to redownload my purchased books to put on the 505.

I guess they heard that Amazon was not getting into ebooks afterall, got scared, and decided to exit the business, too.

I don't think Sony scares that fast, but it's a funny thought given how much Amazon is a book monster.

Actually, I'm hoping that it's due to unexpectedly high levels of demand for the 505! ;-)

Actually, it's due to the DNS being screwed.

Unable to access eBook Store -100

What causes this? I run CONNECT without errors, but when I try to look at the book store it says I'm not connected to the Internet. Which, of course, I am. This worked a couple weeks ago, but I don't think I've changed anything. With the new PRS 505, I hope we see a Sony store that's a straight web site. Being tied to this stupid CONNECT program is for the birds.

It's the web site. Jon says it's DNS issues.
Let's continue this discussion here...

RSaunders points out that you get an "Unable to connect to the store Error: -100" type message. (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14779)

Okay, already it appears to be working. That was fast!

Yes it was fast. It was the DNS as I was unable to get an IP from the DNS and it was an almost instant error when trying to connect. I have the IP saved now in case it happens again as long as the IP is the same it'll work.
