Netflix down

The popular DVD rental site went down temporarily Tuesday afternoon.

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.
