    Hmm... is dealextreme down? I ordered loads of stuff from them the other night. I went there today to check the progress of my order.... it was working one minute and then Bam! the whole website is unreachable... i even used http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ to check the website too... but still no luck. Should i start panicking now?

    This better not be Nintendo's doing. Sure DX sells flash carts, but they sell so much more. I'm waiting on a pair of ear buds from them right now (the kind that are supposed to block out outside noise).

    Ok. i tried clearing my cache and cookies. disable cookies completely and enable cookies again... I still cant reach the website. I hope they are only having a few minor problems during an upgrade or something... Hope they come back soon and its nothing too serious then. Thanks for the tip Rayder. and thanks Diffusion for trying the website for me.

    No. I don't think so. Nintendo can't tell China what to do, can it?

    DX can swap severs... But it may take a bit of time if this it what it is.

    Ya this is definitely nintendo's doing. Stock up on flashcarts soon because all these sites will be gone soon and flash carts prices will skyrocket as demand overwhelms quantity and even the cheapest things like DSTT will be $150+. [​IMG]
