    I couldn't access it either. Page is not available. And it says it's down for anyone else as well when I checked it with the site down checker you have provided. I don't use Tor, so I can't confirm if I can access the website through it.

    As far as I know, it's appeared to be down since saturday. It was yesterday that I connected to it via Tor, and found it wasn't down. It's the same today. Both times I've reached it, I was using european exit nodes, Sweden and France respectively.

    There's nothing on their blog about any kind of outage or blocking. I was going to ask on their IRC but Tors IRC doesn't accept connections from Tor relays. Someone really thought this one through.o_O

    It appears to be geographic to a point. I haven't been able to access http://torstatus.blutmagie.de/ from any exit in the US. Exits in europe all work fine.

    To make matters a bit more interesting, I could barely access http://torstatus.info/ directly, a mirror site. It took over 7 minutes for the page to completely load. It wasn't due to traffic on my end.

    Using Pingdom Website Speed Test, and a server out of Dallas, Texas:

    That site is sure slow! Just FYI.

    Funny. I could access that website normally.
