Amazon “issues”

Has anyone else been experiencing problems loading images over at Amazon? It's like their image server is seriously dying or under attack, and it's been this way for a few days. With many sites it's not such a big deal, but because Amazon relies on images for all their tabbed navigation, it makes the site nearly impossible to use when the images won't load.

Update: a megnut reader writes, "I live in Wisconsin and have had great difficulty using Amazon for about 6 weeks now. It has practically become useless to me.

I have a broadband connection, and I have not been able to load a page from Amazon since the holidays." Amazon, what gives?
