I'm going to hazard a guess in that this has something to do with it.

If not then it will just be them switching over to the distributed servers they talk about here

Maybe their new servers are all in the far east, so its a combination of the two?

They were down before(last year?) and were back up and running days later. They'll be back up soon, really it's impossible to kill TBP.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own!

I can't believe I missed that news. The Times only barely covered it and in general news sources in the US hardly or did not at all mention it. Seems a major thing to brush aside. As for Pirate Bay it's back up so no worries on that end.
