    Not just the store. The forums are down too it seems. The steam application is down. I can launch games but can't download updates or sync with the site to get my updated library. In other words, I'm stuck playing civ 5 on my graphic_card-less desktop instead of my gaming laptop :-(

    Yup. It's annoying. I mean, I'm too mildly inconvenienced to come up with a lame joke or pun.

    Something... something... broke my Steam of consciousness?

    Yeah, I got nothing.

    There isn't any scheduled maintenance. So it seems the engineers forgot to put coal in the Steam Engine.

    Although that isup.me site says it is down. The site and client are working great for me.

    I'm sure it'll pick up steam soon & become operational again.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The pressure getting to you?
    No need to get so steamed up about it.
    No need to vent out on the rest of us.
    Take some time to cool down.

    -I guess Gaben ran out of Steam.

    -There's a reason engines switched from Steam to diesel years ago.

    -I'm Steaming over how I can't play my games right now.

    Joking aside, it seems to be working just fine for me. Store page loads and everything in the app.
