Alan Pfeiffer-Traum from UH was kind enough to explain:

"tick.uh.edu has been offline to the internet since mid-February. About that time we saw a sudden sharp increase in traffic from many sources. The high level of traffic overwhelmed tick and made it unusable. We hope that this event will eventually fade away so we can allow access to the service again."
