This is happening to me as well. I played fine all day, and it's just now happening. I haven't seen anything from Mojang yet, but from the looks of it - since I'm not the only one having the problem - it's not my client.
Same here. Me and my friend were playing fine all day long. I went to a baseball game and dinner and came back. When I tried to get on I couldn't connect. My friend was online until his Java crashed and then he said he couldn't get back on either. Mojang really needs to take a look at this and see what's going on.
Tell ALL of your friends, and tell them to tell all of their friends.
The issue happens really, really, really frequently and isn't addressed.
Perhaps in time if you were to tell all of your friends, and they would all of theirs;
Sales would take a sharp declining trend (as people become aware that they are very often unable to join or host a server with their friends due to no fault of their own)
Mojang may deem this issue a priority which they need to resolve.
This is the first time this has happened to me, is it a really common problem? I've been playing minecraft for 8 months now...... I'm really annoyed because i want to check if i've become a moderator on my favourite server..... (Recently completed an application for it)

To all of you people who think Notch is still working on the game, he stopped working on Minecraft in late 2011. Get your facts straight and stop spamming his twitter about Minecraft updates.
