Their server seems to be swamped. There's nothing like a unresponsive server to sober you up from a whimsical book purchase on a FRiday.

I was trying to buy:

* Making Things Talk (great into to networking with low-level HW)

* The Best of Instructables (excellent selection of mostly simple projects, includes IKEA hacking)

Nice choices.

I guess 70% savings is always enough to get everyone to take down their server.
