Was definitely down roughly from 1PM to 5PM.
Tried accessing from my phone as well. iPhone 4S. Using to reply right now.
I'll check out the logs shortly.
do note, we had some name server issues on Sunday morning so maybe your issue was that you were hitting the incorrect name servers for a little while until the correct name servers propagated in your area.

seemed fine for some as they were on and posting and i checked with another member.
i thought it was a local ISP issue with the site.
the real issue was that I mistakenly made some domain name changes with our registrar rather than the server company we use so it picked up the wrong name servers. once they were changed, it started to propagate around the globe. when I got up around 10:30 am on Sunday morning I saw a bunch of e-mails about the site being down so I changed the name servers back to the correct server names. doing that started the propagation process again. those who use opendns or google's dns didn't have much of an issue as their servers recache sites pretty rapidly - the ones who mostly had problem were users who use their ISP's DNS servers.

here's a tutorial using the openDNS server settings:
if you'd prefer to use google's DNS, just use these two IPs: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
