Microsoft posted this on their Windows 7 home page today:  

Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal—we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.

No ETA on when it will be available.  I salute those who are able to get it.  I may not as I’m calling it an early night.  Happy downloading my friends.
