bitcoinconsultancy.com seems to be inaccessible for several days now. Does anybody know what's up?

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

It was taken down while investigating the compromise of Bitcoinica. No-one has the time to put it back up yet because of managing these payouts to people

Wow. Archive.org doesn't even have a copy of the website.

Did they ask for removal (of perhaps all cached copies on the web) in case they needed to make a clean getaway and leave as little trail as possible ?

I don't see what taking the site down has to do with anything anyways.

All it shows is that when support is needed from them, all info is REMOVED and they go into hiding.

As far as I can tell from the little bit of info that I can piece together from what they have said, that website might have been on the same compromised mail server that led to Bitcoinica's downfall. Either that, or it was the "semi-public" VPS that allowed the cracker access to the mail server in the first place. In any case, My understanding is that the website was unfinished, and possibly unindexed, and I guess they decided to scrap it for the time being.

Thats a bit overboard.
