Default NHC competition - can't register, server slammed?

anyone else having trouble registering their beers for NHC?

i was able to create my account easily, but every time i try adding an entry i get a 503 timeout message.

looks like the server is crumbling under the onslaught...

Yep. After sending email after email warning people to register early because each site will fill up apparently they weren't ready for everyone trying to enter as soon as they opened it.
