    Seems Flippa is having a few problems

    " Today we, along with a large number of other internet sites and services, have been impacted by a major service degradation with Amazon Web Services, our infrastructure provider.

    As a result the Flippa website has been down for the past few hours. We do not yet have a firm timeframe for when the website will be back up, however we are monitoring the situation closely and will keep you informed of any updates we receive.

    We are also aware that a number of auctions were due to finish on Flippa during this period. We are working on a solution for those listings, with the goal of ensuring fairness for both our sellers and our buyers ".

    Hah yeah I was just reading about this on the BBC, Flippa wasnt the only website to take the hit, Quora went down as did Trello along with some US gov securities & exchange.

    Specifically it was the AWS's S3 that got knocked offline

    Mashable was affected too. They've been tweeting funny memes about this. AWS downtime really affected a lot of websites and services. Saw a post about Whitehouse (not) being affected or so.
