AGU's aware of the problem, as I got a response from them about 4 hours ago ... saying they had an ETA of 2 hrs to restore it.  (see below).

Now, in their defense, they *did* get it back up, but I noticed some odd issues that would've made session search unusable ... I didn't really get a chance to poke around too much before it went back offline.

We will let you know what action AGU will take should the technical difficulties continue.  I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
