The Roberts Space Industries site is back up now and as of writing this the total pledges come to $1,030,490 out of a goal of $2 million, but according to Roberts the drive lost a lot of momentum due to the technical difficulties on the site.
"We were tracking to do well over $1 million on the first day until things blew up," Roberts said in an interview with Polygon. "I'm pretty confident we would have been over $2 million by now."
He added that "fundraising is still pretty impressive, considering being down for 50 per cent of the days we could have been raising money."
The Kickstarter is only looking to raise $500,000 i.e. about half of the needed $1 million left. Any money raised via Kickstarter will be noted on the Roberts Space Industries site as well, and all donation will be tied to one's account there.

Chris Roberts is off to make one kickass mother of a MMO Game with some serious Wing Commander flavor (the initial trailer has like 5 WC easter eggs)
