AFAIK, the site's been down since yesterday, May 13th. I can only vouch for the afternoon since I didn't try to logon in the morning. However, someone else PM'd me and said it had been down since yesterday morning as he had tried several times to logon.

Just tried it, and it's still down...

"Due to a hardware failure, the primary Castlecops site at http://castlecops.com went down at May 13, 2008 approximately 02:00 GMT
It returned briefly after a reboot, but failed to stay running.
Castlecops is taking this opportunity to replace the faulty hardware by transferring the system to some new hardware
The estimated return of the service is not known at this time..."

Site status...

"...this past week has brought a series of unfortunate events. The wiki, hashes, german and mirrors #1 sites are all moving from ApplicationX to ISC.org due to DDoS attacks on CastleCops there. Simultaneously, the main site had its MySQL server overused which is on a shared server. We are working on recovering performance. Since Saturday morning we have Analyzed and Repaired all tables. Right now we are Optimizing them with no ETA."
