Steam's Friends network connection issues right now

Seems like certain areas have issues with Steam's Friends-network right now...

Basically, since 6:57 PM (Central European time), Steam keeps on going on- and offline in Friends repeatedly, with roughly 30-60 seconds inbetween connection-lost and connection-regain.

Tried switching content servers already (from Germany Dusseldorf to Netherlands to Ireland), wouldn't fix that. Anyone else having that issue?

Location: Germany

in b4 it's related to Torchlight 2's release.

Steam is offline right now, and a friend earlier reported Steam going offline and online all the time.

just started happening with me too, and I am in america. It could easily be related to heavy traffic from torchlight 2. But, steam friends keeps going offline then back online like every two mins.

Whenever Steam comes back online I can talk to a few friends who did not even notice me going offline. Seems like I go offline but they still see me as online.

Same problem here. Thought it might have been my connection though.

Happened here too, and between my friends, it seems I'm the only one experiencing.

We're having some problems with a small number of our servers, so you may see some weirdness. We're working on getting them back to normality as soon as possible.
