Is anyone else having trouble with this url?
I've been trying it since the email came through, it just times out waiting for a reply.
I did try to get to it from the parent site, with the same effect. No problem with the 
nist site direct, but no go with tf.nist

I have no trouble with .pdf's from anywhere else, but I can't find the file anywhere else.
