The morning of December 11th, the site went down for a few hours. Back up - read more for info on what happened.
I was on the phone with ServerBeach at 7:20 after the automated reboot didn't work. They said they weren't able to talk to the server either and dispatched someone to the data center. A few minutes ago I got the note that it was up. I sshed in and started up the app.
Worst case scenerio: as I blogged on S3 Saves the Day, I had a backup of the database less than 12 hours old. So if the server was completely dead we would have lost a few hours of data but the site would have survived.
Sorry the frustration - it has been a frazzled morning for me as well :-/
