Steam servers are too busy to handle your request?

Is anyone else getting the error message, "The Steam servers are too busy to handle your request" when trying to download a game?

Try switching data centres (view > settings > downloads + cloud > download region). Some areas may be busier than others.

Or you can always try again in a bit.
