I am suddenly unable to access the semprog.com website that contains sample code for Programming the Semantic Web. Is there an alternate location?

I'm looking for this site too. I just got the book. By the way, can anyone help me with some php parallel examples that might help me understand chapter 2 that uses python. I'm learning python as a result of wanting to learn this material.

Just wanted to let you know that we're trying to reach the authors of the book to find out what happened to the website. If it won't be back online soon we'll move the sample code to oreilly.com.

Thanks Sarah. I was able to get an email through to Toby, so he is aware. He passed my query on to someone last week, but it is still inaccessible.
Thanks for your help!

It looks like it happened again. Anybody knows where (and if) I can (legally) get the code, expecially the csv files? The book is due to the library at the end of May!

I can't open the website link either. I just read the book and want to implement some of the practices. Could anyone tell us what happens with the website?

We've reached out to the authors again. This time we'll be sure to put a copy of the code on oreilly.com.

I notice these messages are a year old and still there is no site up and running. Anyone know if the semprog.com site ever got resolved? I should have waited to buy this book or purchased another one.

I wanted to let you know that the site is back up again, and the example files are also available from O'Reilly at http://examples.orei...emantic-Web.zip.
I'm sorry for the delay in getting this resolved, but I hope the files will be useful to you now that they're available.

Unfortunately some of the examples in the book include code that fetches from specific URLs on semprog.com. Currently those examples (contained both in the text of the book and the downloadable examples) will fail in ways that are likely to cause confusion to anyone trying to follow them.
If semprog.com isn't coming back it'd be good to update the examples for the next print of the book to point to somewhere permanent.
