URL: Is Engines of Creation off the web?

I am unable to connect to Russell Whitaker's copy of Engines of Creation
at http://www.asiapac.com/EnginesOfCreation/, nor for that matter to
his site asiapac.com, nor to his SGI web. I thought there was a mirror
of EOC somewhere in Europe (in Poland?), but I can't find that either.
Does anyone know what the story is?

I think it would be a good idea for a plaintext version of EOC to be
circulated on the net as well, eg via Project Gutenberg, in the
fashion of Bruce Sterling's Hacker Crackdown. This may be unfashionable,
it might neglect the benefits of hypertext, etc, but ASCII texts do
at least spread a little more widely than HTML ones, at present.
