I'm not seeing that problem, but I've heard reports from around the
internet of various outages affecting a lot of different services, and
I'm wondering if perhaps a critical library failed to download. The
site appears to use jQuery from googleapis.com, so if there's any sort
of failure accessing that (I've heard hints that suggest possible DNS
failures??), that could break the whole site.
