    Steam is giving me a no connection at the bottom, anyone else have this problem.

    Also earlier it was giving me this error:

    The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again later.

    Thought this never happened to steam, or at least that's the impression I got from all the people raging when origin when down.

    You can still launch most games fine even like this, but obviously TF2/MW3/Anything using VAC or Valve's servers will not work online.

    Well, yeah it pretty much never happens. I've been using Steam for years upon years and I gotta say this is the first time i've noticed it go down for an extended period of time.
    EDIT:
    "We're currently experiencing unexpected downtime that started around 10:30 PST (GMT-8). We're working on getting everything running again as soon as possible."

    "Update: Our data center's uninterruptible power supplies experienced a power failure. The power is back on now and we're working to get service restored as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."

    well i spoke too soon, half my friends are playing games just fine on my friends list, but my games refuse to load (must be a cloud syncing issue), at least everything else is fine.

    Uninterrupted power got interrupted. Valve phail.

    That was the second longest downtime I've ever experienced with Steam. It's up now though, so all is well.
