"Over the past couple of weeks Xbox Live has had quite a few issues. Games have been dropping out, account recoveries are failing, matchmaking isn't stable, downloads from the marketplace stall or give error codes, and of course on some occasions, the service isn't able to connect at all. Though the service is better now than it has been in the last couple of weeks, it's still a long way from being as rock solid and snappy as it had previously been. The folks at Xbox Live Operations really are working hard to get things back up and running smoothly. So while they do their thing, why not take some time out and check out these other fun and informative internet diversions."
