You appear to have a (empty) robots.txt, but that shouldn't be causing
any issues.

I looked at the page source and your HTTP headers and didn't see anything
obvious that would indicate why the pages aren't being indexed.

Have you tried Google's Webmaster tools?  http://google.com/webmasters
That might shed some light as to why your pages aren't being indexed.
(And let us know if it helped/didn't help, so we can give better advice
to others in the future.  :-)
