Still can't access it.

I asked a few friends online in the USA to try and it appears down for them too.

http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/torrentleech.org says it's up.

Does not work from home or work, (however using same ISP).

Confused now.

Appears an upstream ISP from me may be blocking certain sites at the router level.

Torrentleech is up and running. I can access it using a VPN link.

However nobody at my ISP or downstream of the parent ISP can get there.

Our ISP is experiencing some connection issues at the moment, mostly with their international connection to the US,but it could affect other countries/ISPs as well, so until they fix it, many users might be unable to connect to the site.Nothing to worry about,just be patient ;)

Problem solved!

small update for those who were wondering:
CG: BACK FROM THE GRAVE

Don't worry folks, we've not been shut down by angry B-movie distributors hungry for money; we've merely suffered a rather unpleasant hard disk failure. The new hard disk has now arrived, and we're getting the site back up as you read this.

You can keep up to speed with what's happening on IRC: #cinemageddon on irc.cinemageddon.org

It would help if someone gave the actual URL.
And isn't ti suspicious that all of them have suddenly gone out for maintainance?
BTW: Is it http://bitmetv.org ?

Torrent-Damage website is still showing the maintenance message, and I'm getting 404 errors on the tracker, but the IRC server is telling me that my ISP has been banned for abusive behavior. Can anyone confirm TD has banned Comcast? I'll miss the site if it's true, but I don't want to waste my time checking to see if it's back up if it won't matter for me.

Your isp hasn't been banned, you should be able to connect. Try again. (from their irc channel)

Not exactly a torrent site but VCDQ is down which is very, very unusual. The last time was when a fire in Houston knocked out their server.

File? You mean Fire don't you?
