Hello,

That's because the site has been slashdotted.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ it's working for me. Just tried both NOOBS and Raspbian downloads.

I'm using my phone's hotspot (T-Mobile) because Frontier/Verizon FIOS has been dead for the last couple of days. Don't know if that matters, but as I said, it's working for me
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
