Title: Trouble Connecting
Post by: umine18 on September 08, 2012, 07:26:06 pm
I get the following message now when i try to connect:

"Connection Lost
 HTTP respeonse code:503 for URL: http://session.minecraft.net/game/joinserver.jsp?user=umine18"

Tried closing launcher and restarting and that doesnt seem to help.

authentication server for minecraft is down.. session errors like that usually indicate that.

Problem seems to be intermittent.  First 7 or 8 times it failed for me, but kept trying and got in one time.  So something may be up, but it is probably getting hammered right now.

Just keep trying.  People are getting in now, but it is hit or miss.
