Attempted to download Drush for Windows @ http://www.drush.org/drush_windows_installer but site is down:

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.
Error messagePDOException: SQLSTATE[00000] [1040] Too many connections in lock_may_be_available() (line 165 of /home/weitzman/public_html/drush.ws/public/includes/lock.inc).

Any suggestions? I found this: https://drupal.org/node/97249/release?api_version%5B%5D=103 but I am not certain that is what I should download since Chris S on #102 sends us to drush.org - link above.

FYI - Site has been down since 6am or so that I know of. I waited thinking it was something that would be resolved quickly.

Thanks for your help!

Since all of http://drush.org

Since all of http://drush.org appears to be down at the moment and not just the installer, I'm sure it's an issue that they are aware of and actively working on.

The Drush releases that you found are used to manually install Drush and are not the same as the installer in the video which will automatically install Drush for you. If you're in a pinch and want to install Drush as soon as possible, there are step-by-step directions on how to use these files to perform a manual installation here: https://drupal.org/node/594744.

If the instructions are intimidating and it doesn't look like you would be comfortable with performing a manual installation, I would recommend waiting until http://drush.org is back online to download the automatic installer that is used in the video.

Hope this helps!
