Default What happened to the ftp site weather.noaa.gov?

I have a script that generates a custom web page of TAFs and METARs for
airports that I'm interested in so I can quickly access that information
from my Treo. I just noticed that it's been broken since late January
because it's unable to ftp to weather.noaa.gov. Does anybody know if that
site is gone for good or just moved? I know Rick "Man on Dog" Santorum
was trying to prevent the NOAA from giving us the weather information we
paid them to collect, but he's out now so I was hoping that particular bit
of political idiocy was over.

Duh, why didn't I think of that? I blame the airsickness - I was out
practicing stalls and steep turns for my BFR and I had to do it above a
cloud layer so I didn't have a good horizon.

Thanks, Hamish.

but in spamming, it's considered unnecessary precision.

....or have a look at http://www.airspace-v.com to get it mapped on
Google Maps with more information like airfield coordinates and winds
and temperatures aloft.

Yeah, yeah, that's what they all say :-). Actually, having just
completed my own BFR, I can commiserate...

Doesn't help me with my cell phone - the built in browser can't do Google

That's OK - he doesn't really care about your problem. He's just advertising
his web site....

I use aviationweather.gov on my cell phone. The graphics are basic
enough that most cell phone browers do fine with it. Most of my
students have not had any issues using aviationweather.gov from their
cell phone browsers.
