Can't get patch to 2.0.8, can't play

For the past 40 hours or so, I'm stuck and can't play SC2. When I start the launcher, it wants to download 2.0.8. But then tries for a while and then bombs out saying to "check my internet connection"

I've tried this both over WiFI and hard wired with CAT6 cable to my FIOS connection. Using speed test, I am getting 56 mb/s down and 30 mb/s up. Access to all other sites on the 'net is fine.

Are the servers completely overloaded? Or perhaps does SC2 now hate me?

Can't play and want to.
