Ahh...I see the problem.  You ended up in the firewall rules of the box. 
For some reason that I'm not yet able to find, the box rebooted itself on
the 16th at around 11PM or so.  One the things the box runs is portsentry. 
It's kinda funny - according to the logs, you (at least, I'm assuming it's
you) requested a web page from the box *just after* portsentry had started,
but before the web server had started (which, because it binds to port 80,
causes portsentry to ignore requests to that port.)  I've fixed the
configuration of portsentry so that it no longer monitors port 80 even if
the web server goes down (for some odd reason.)

I've also deleted a few Sonic IP's out of the ipchains rules.  Give it a
shot again, and let me know if it works for you again...
