I have moved hub.darcs.net <http://hub.darcs.net/> to a new VPS of its own. Note the IP address has changed to 126.96.36.199.
The web UI is up again and should be working normally. I have added status info to the front page.
The ssh server is not yet operational, I am still working out a few problems with it. For now, you can get or pull repos using their http url (eg darcs get http://hub.darcs.net/simon/ssh).
Thanks for your patience, and please watch the #darcs IRC channel, darcs-users list or http://hub.darcs.net <http://hub.darcs.net/> front page for more news.
