    For the majority of the time, Amazon.com Web Services (AWS) data feed is fine. You might occassionally see delays or rare outages in AWS. My guess is that it is due to search engine spiders such as Google. Imagine 1000 websites using AWS-enabled scripts (our script or other scripts) and a spider hitting each of those 1000 websites once per second. That would generate up to 1000 AWS requests per second that AWS has to handle. Now image several different spiders (Google, FastSearch, etc.) all deciding to spider at the same time (perhaps the "big" spiders need to agree to not spider on the same days). Hopefully Amazon.com Inc. will add more servers to handle the increasing number of AWS requests. Again, for the majority of the time, AWS is fine.

    In the store template books.html there is a feed for bestselling books in the left column. I had to rebuild this site and just noticed that the feed no longer works, although the bestseller feeds on all the other store templates work fine.
