Missing flight story

What do you think happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

I see a crowd source link to: http://www.smh.com.au/world/search-for-malaysia-airlines-plane-turns-to-crowdsourcing-for-clues-20140311-34ja9.html
But I haven't been able to get it to work.

I'm guessing the site is overloaded. But I for one would like to try to search for it.

@Gallup - that sounds like a summary for some documentaries I've seen on planes that have vanished.  In one case, a few military fighters vanished and then a search plane vanished as well.  It took like 30 years but someone reviewed the recordings and surmised that conditions led to both the fighter group and the search plane following a signal from the wrong ground base, one that was beyond their fuel range.

Since the B777 is quad redundant fly-by-wire, there are multiple power busses and backup auxiliary power generators, and battery backups. There are also mechanical horizontal situation indicating instruments and barometric altimeters, and a galvanic compass. Crews often carry hand held GPS as well.

It's all conjecture at this point, but I'm thinking fire and/or a smoke filled cockpit or something even more sinister.

Update, I got it to work but I can't use  my Linux Mint desktop computer, it just bogs it down too much. It works fine with WinXP

Bungled terrorism is possible, which explains why no terrorist claims have been made.
