Me, my friend, and my brother haven't been able to connect to ANY servers. We get ethier an End of Stream error, a Took Too Long to Log in, and this:
java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 503
Me and my brother are on the same network, but my friend is on a completely different network. Not only can we connect to my server, we also can't connect to other servers. I know 503 means Service Unavalible, so the ultimate question is:
ARE THE MINECRAFT SERVERS DOWN???
If you're receiving a 503 http error or are receiving a "Took too long to login" error message, then the minecraft.net login-authentification server is offline/overloaded

Overview: The server migration to the Amazon S3 server that happened a few weeks back was completed. However, Tobias and other mojang members were receiving error after error with the server. So, until they can find a better suitable host, they are running the login/authentification server off of a cloud server.
So as a little reassurance, if youre getting those two errors, try going to http://minecraft.net
, if it wont load for you, then the server is down.
