If you're planning on grabbing some DVDs at Netflix.com, you're likely to be greeted with this message rather than it's normal site.
The Netflix web site is temporarily unavailable.
Thanks for logging on. We're sorry that our Web site is temporarily unavailable. We're working on it as fast as we can so thanks for your patience. Don't worry about your DVDs -- our distribution centers nationwide are humming as usual right now so you should receive your next shipment without delay.

That's because Netflix is down. Is it a site error? Ran out of DVDs? A belated labor day? No one except Netflix seems to know what's going on, except that this isn't the first time it's happened, probably not the last time either.
Maybe Netflix does this now and then to stay in the news? But one thing's for sure, no site = no customers.
Update: And it's back up for now. Begin countdown to next outage... 3, 2, 1...
