    I've been trying to login to PayPal for a couple of hours now and haven't been able to. I checked with someone else that lives locally (south western Ontario, Canada) and they weren't able to either. Anyone else having any issues connecting to PayPal this afternoon? It's about 2:45PM EDT right now.

    Thanks.

    Odd. Thanks. Obviously my internet is not down - I can post here :). Strange that my associate who is on a different network as me is having the same issue though.

    Hmmm... well as I wrote above, I am not the only one experiencing this. I know my internet connection is fine. Indeed, I have tried multiple browsers; cookies are not the issue. And it's not an issue with my caplocks - my browser is spinning at "connecting to paypal.com" so I'm not even at the login page.

    Regardless, according to this site: http://downrightnow.com/paypal

    It appears others may be experiencing issues too, "Likely Service Disruption."

    Thanks everyone. I had checked from one of my servers, from my mobile device and had a couple of acquaintances check that use the same provider as me, and all of those reported a time out. So it must have been some kind of connectivity/routing issue between my provider and paypal - everything else loaded fine.

    Anyhow, I can report that as of about five minutes ago, I was able to load it.

    Th3T3chGuy: Thanks... and cool.. I'm, depending on what part of T.O., 45 min to an hour north west of you in "God's Country." :) Maybe we'll run into each other sometime.
