Checked with the server info and here are a few of the messages.
"The server is experiencing high loads again since about 10 minutes. We're working on tracking down the issue."
"It was an incoming attack. All filtered out."
"The load is still a little high but all services are up, it will go down in a few mins."
Part of the problem at least is caused from the server this site is on. The server was just upgraded Pentium 3 to 4 and had a ton of additional memory installed so things should be better than ever once the dust settles.
