If you've been trying to log onto Netflix this afternoon and been having trouble, it wasn't just you.
At around 2:45 p.m. PDT or so, after 20 minutes of struggling to get onto the site, I tried again and found the message, "The Netflix Web site is temporarily down."
The site said the service would be back up soon, most likely by 3 p.m. PDT. But we shall see.
Update: Netflix now says it will be at least 3:30 p.m. before its service is back up and running.
