[14:03:53] <christel> [>> $*] [Global Notice] Hi all! As you no doubt have 
noticed we're having some problems our end, we're experiencing a rather large 
Denial of Service attack and most of our servers were affected, and as such, 
most of our users! I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience and hope you all 
hang in there. Thank you for using freenode!

Things are starting to pick up, but it's still lagging behind. Before even 
services (nickserv, chanserv etc) were all down. Tough.

Hope you get in soon 8).
