Same here. I had problems earlier trying to check the status of a shipped order in my account.

Me too - nice to know it was nothing personal!

Site appears to be back up but account access still seems to be a problem. It took several attempts to get into my account to get tracking information for 2 orders.

The site was very slow this morning. I had a hard time connecting to the site at times.

It's back up now by the evening. I just placed two orders without any problem.

Amazon has been acting a little screw for me also and it still shows that My Gone With The Wind order hasn't even gone into the "Preparing For Shipment" phase

I see Amazon's website problems even made the Monday news.


Amazon Recovers From Tech Slowdown

POSTED: 2:13 pm EST November 9, 2004

SEATTLE -- Amazon.com says things are running normally again on its Web site after a sometimes sluggish Monday.

A spokeswoman said the world's largest Internet retailer began experiencing "a slowness" Monday morning. That caused problems for some customers trying to access the Web site or buy items.

The problem was fixed by Monday night.

Amazon technicians weren't sure what had caused the slowdown, but the spokeswoman said the Seattle-based company typically wouldn't disclose that information anyway.

I can't login to amazon UK. I can browse, but I get a page not found error once I enter my password.
