The Million Dollar Hompage Broke?

Youd think for a million bucks the million dollar homepage would work. Im sure it will be up again soon, but I'm just sayin. So far its been down for about 20 minutes that I know about. That would be down since 3:25pm to my knowledge.

UPDATE: It has now been down for 1 hour. (4:25)
UPDATE: It is back.

As far as I can tell, it's been down for days... I keep checking it. However, it's not because he's outtie -- he has suffered a massive DDoS attack. One report had it at possibly up to 100,000 computers in on the attack.

According to his host company, Tew didn't have any anti-DDoS service established on his account, which would seriously eat into his profits.

There are several news stories about it which you can find by going to google or yahoo news and searching million dollar homepage.
