Ahh.....something appears to have gone wrong at the server level for the
stupid movie physics website. The link appeared in the business section o=
f
the newspaper and I visited the site the same day I posted the link to
TAP-L. The site worked that day just fine.......maybe it got too many hit=
s
for the type of account it had on the server so they shut the site
down. When you pay a commercial server to host your website the cost
depends largely on the number of hits your site gets and the data
bandwidth required to download your site. My guess is the site got
overwhelmed with hits and passed it's monthly limit....thereby getting cu=
t
off by the website host server.

Save the link and check it again at a later time, I bet the problem will
be fixed.....
