We have checked the server thoroughly, and there are no constraints on
access to it. However, it appears that some ISPs may not have kept =
their DNS
up to date and so cannot find the server, much less get to the data on =
This server gets pretty heavy use at some times of the day, and it may
simply get bogged down, with the result that connections time out.

Just for a check, see whether you can reach, which is =
the IP
of the server. The server has also been known as y12web2.ctd.ornl.gov.

There is another copy of the site at www.ornl.gov, though the home page =
that site (http://www.ornl.gov/sgml/sc34/sc34oldhome.htm) is =
not up to date. However, if you substitute www.ornl.gov for =
in any address, it should get you to another copy of the files.

I can e-mail the file to anyone who can't get through to the server. (I =
just verified that the address in Bernard's message gets to the right =
even over a dialup connection.)
