Countdown Down?

Why do I  learn about things like the LHC Countdown web page from Gizmodo, of all places? Yes, I like gadgety things like the next physicist (can I get a witness here?), but I’m always surprised when I learn things relevant to, like, science, from, like, you know, nerds.

But why is the webpage, um, down for the count?  Gizmodo effect?  Google cache has a recent copy, and it doesn’t look like an official announcement page (as I expected).  Nor does it look like a doomsday-fringe page, as I expected next.  Seems to be a genuinely-excited person, but one who seems to be attracting a lot of excited, um, commenters.  Blogs are what they are, folks.
