Not to sure what the cause was, but my site was down earlier today for almost 9 hours. Email, FTP, and even SSH worked fine without any problems. Trying to connect via the browser just kept timing out.
Dreamhost didn’t really have any notice of what was going on, and a couple other people were also experiencing this.
According to InternetSeer:
Your Web Site is no longer on error

Total Time on Error: 8 hours, 48 minutes, 37 seconds
It wasn’t too bad since a majority of those hours would be where people would’ve been sleeping. Besides me that is…
Oh well, at least it’s back up.
