It would appear that the server we’re hosted on was likely rebooted in the morning of January 10 and the IRC server was back up and accepting connections by about 6:15am ET (GMT-5).
We’re still unsure why this downtime occurred, but things all seem to be reachable at this time.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and will update you with more information as we receive it. Thanks so much for your patience. 🙂
