WordPress.com offline

I have been trying to browse sites on wordpress.com for the last few minutes but I am getting a 503 error message.

Anyone know what’s going on there?

503 error message on WordPress.com

UPDATE:
D’oh! Somehow this post was posted twice – I have deleted the duplicate.

FURTHER UPDATE:
It looks like the wordpress.com site is back up but on Scoble’s site, at least, the last one or two days posts are missing. This certainly dents any confidence you would have in a hosted service. Occasional downtime is acceptable (barely – but you can understand it if a site is a victim of its own success) but loss of data is unacceptable – I can only hope that this too is temporary.
