Today, I got a lot of "Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle."
I am using deepbit.net. Are they having problems? or is it my end?

Yes its a known issue, they have been down for some time.

I recommend using an alternate pool like bitclockers.com or any of the other sites listed on the wiki

First try increase your askrate.  If using poclbm add -a10 and work your way down.  I use -a4 in some instances.

We had a DDoS attack today and countermeasures were used that caused connection breaking in some cases.
I hope this will be fixed soon and our fees are lowered to compensate for those problems.

I understand the frustration of DDoS attacks.
Hope it is fixed soon, as my miners are not working 100% as it supposed to.
At first I thought it was my GPU OCed too high and failing with this hot weather.
