What happened to hipbase.com?

[EDIT] hipbase.com was back online for a while this morning, but it seems to have disappeared again.[/EDIT]

I don’t know the details of what’s happening over at one of our favourite Hip sites (for those not in the know on this one, hipbase.com is coming up 404, and has been since the wee hours of the morning on February 6); but I chatted briefly with Lance (hipbase.com owner/admin) and he said that it looks like a maintenance script that his host ran is to blame for this downtime…

As more info becomes available, I will post it here.
