Panic! Chaos! The server and site are down for maintenance.

ETA on servers being back up: No ETA

While we are down, we do have a 1.6.1 temporary server you can connect to:

escapecraft.com:26565

Remember Kids! If you want to play on the server, do not update your client
till the server updates!
It's best to keep a copy of the bin folder for minecraft so you can downgrade
easier.

The bin folder is inside the .minecraft folder, which is here in the following OS':
  • Windows Vista/7: %Appdata%\Roaming\.minecraft
  • Windows XP: %Appdata%\.minecraft in Windows XP and earlier)
  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft
  • Linux: ~/.minecraft
In the mean time, why not chat on IRC?
