"Some time" is about 28 hours from the time of THIS message.

The machine that hosts the metaserver (and keyserver) was taken down
Saturday morning US by Dave Ahn due to a security compromise.  He is
in the process of re-bulding it, but it is the US weekend.

Generally, if the meta dies, its re-started within 5 minutes or so.
But not much one can do if the machine is off.

That's a little premature after only less than 30 hours.  Give Dave
some time.
