My VPS is down as well as Grove (Their CP) and WT main site.
Not good..... A big event is coming and I am expecting 2x the traffic in next few days.
Its one of those times when you want your site to be up 100%.
It's down from our location as well. We just get SYN_SENT and no response. This could also be a mild attack on their network.
It appears I can reach some servers at WT (none of our own) but they are inaccessible for some protocols. Furthermore, their main site is down but the server inside their network can hit their device.

They did send out this "maintenance notification" 3 days ago but I guess they had problems after the reboot, looks like the whole system is down
This is a notice to inform you that the parent VPS hardware node that provides service to your VPS account(s) will be rebooted at Thursday September 17, 2009 between the hours of 12AM and 6AM CST (06:00 - 12:00GMT) to address security updates to Virtuozzo the software powers your server. The reboot should take no longer than 30 to 45 minutes. If you have any questions please feel free to reply to this notice or contact us via Grove (https://grove.wiredtree.com).
At approximately 1:38PM CST today one of WiredTree's core switches rebooted. This reboot caused BGP sessions to one of our core Juniper routers to be dropped to three of our five upstream providers. BGP sessions were re-established on a different core switch set up for redundancy however there was a brief period of interruption for traffic coming in over those providers while the BGP sessions were re-established and BGP routes propagated. This interruption effected approximately 55% of traffic. Complete network connectivity was restored by 1:59PM CST. We will be working with our network vendors to determine the cause of this issue and to prevent it from happening again and will be monitoring the situation closely. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
