Default Anyone know how long Steam is down for?

Just wondering if any one of the regulars know? Maybe sheduled down time for maintenace or something?

I've been trying to create an account all day and keep getting the message "Your account creation request failed, please try again later." I was itching to play a game tonight and would've went to the store and bought the game had I known I'd waste all day on steam.

Of course I would ask over on their forums but I can't post on their forums until I create an account, ironic isn't it?

Seems to be working fine here. PM me, I'll create an account for you with a generic password that you can change if you want.
