What happened to RUC aka "Experimental" forecasts?

The NOAA RUC aka "Experimental" forecast sites have been down for at least a couple days. Anyone know anything about this? Have they moved to a new web address?

More info?

Does anyone know if this meeting will be limited to windsurfing concerns, or will it include discussion of broader issues, like commerecialization of a currently peaceful and park-like area of the lake? Also, will Park Board members/staff be participating, or just the Yacht Club?

When Experimental says "3-hr fcst valid 20--May--06 22:00Z" is 22:00Z when the three-hour forecast period begins or ends? Thanks
