Server problems?

Connections with the server have been rather spotty lately and tonight, my buddy and I can’t get onto the server at all. It shows we have a connection but we get no Main Room and can’t create a room. There appears to be games running in the server according to the home page server status but we can’t make a room. Could it be something that’s isolated to the West coast US.

We were able to get on and stay on for about an hour at about 9:15 pm PDT.
