I got various error messages: "servers over capacity", "the connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" or just endless cycling.
The site looks normal today. But what happened yesterday is scary, don't you think?
I don't find it particularly scary, as many sites I use for my financial transactions will go down every now and then. None seem totally bullet-proof. When I encounter such an instance, I just leave and revisit the site later.
What I would find scary is a site that has an extended outage, say a couple of days.
