My guess is they are swamped with traffic due to an article about SR coming out from Gawker today, saying they have guns for sale.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

from Mr. SR himself:

UPDATE: everything appears as it should on our end.  A traffic spike (most likely from gawker) caused the outage.  we'll take a closer look at what happened and hopefully devise a solution in case this happens again.  Thanks everyone for your patience.

UPDATE:  we are back online.  there may be intermittent outages in the immediate future as we look at the cause of the outage.  Please allow at least a few hours for the system to catch up in regards to processing deposits, vendor rankings, etc.

UPDATE:  all server data is intact, all backups are up-to-date, and all bitcoins are accounted for.

hey gang,
sorry for the sudden outage.  just found out about it and am looking into it.  I'll keep this thread updated with any developments.  sorry for the trouble.
