Well, I made several more attempts, same problem (connection failure after hitting the "Buy" button) and then FINALLY tried switching browsers. Got my transaction through with no problem.

For the few of you that are using Macs (I use them both at work and at home), be advised that there seems to be an issue with IE for the Mac on the I bond site. I had no problems with Netscape 6.

As a general rule, as a Mac user I find a lot of sites don't test for performance problems on the Mac browsers, so I always keep both IE and Netscape handy so I can switch when a particular site gives me problems.
