A DDoS attack against the pool started today around 17:00 UTC. For this reason, the website and some mining servers may be slow or unavailable. If your miners keep hashing, though, you don't need to worry: your shares are being counted.
All miners who still haven't set up automatic failover to secondary servers, to other pools and/or to solo mining are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. This is ridiculously easy to do with cgminer: you just need to specify additional URLs and credentials in the arguments.
