Right, now that I have your attention everyone, I do not have a fix for this error. This is because there is no fix, people, please stop spamming the Game Client support section with these titled posts, here is what you need to read now:
The Minecraft Servers are temporarily down! They will be back up soon!
Now you all know WHY they aren't up. This applies to everyone! Nobody can connect.
not completely true I have friends that are on and playing atm and have been for a while now
When I look at the server I play on, it looks like there are two people online. I was on earlier today, logged out, but was unable to log in again, so maybe the problem is only with connecting, and those already connected to the servers are fine.
