Apologies for the extended outage - we've had some ongoing networking and performance issues which escalated last night to the point where I was unable to recover. I've moved ZooChat to a new server, so hopefully things will improve now! There may be some quirks and things not quite working as expected yet - so please do let me know if you come across anything which is not quite right. I will need a few days to properly tune the database server, so there may be some minor performance issues in the short term. Also, the search engine is not yet functional - so site search will be offline for a while yet. On a more positive note - the new server is located on the east coast of the US (previously in Singapore), so this should (once things are fully functional again) see improvements for people located in the US and Europe.
