LFS FAQ not there?

The "Important information when posting in the LFS forum" post has a URL to the LFS FAQ. That URL appears broken - no IP for the connexion. I would have put the URL in here, but when I tried posting that I got:

Sorry, in order to post a URL you must have at least 5 posts. This measure was put into place to prevent spamming. Please remove the URL and try again. Posting extra threads to get around this rule will result in all threads being removed.

However, the domain name is, and it is that domain that an IP cannot be found for.

(apparently i can post urls, even tho i only have 4 posts )

Thanks - no, the current FAQ is fine. I'm just messing about with the idea of LFS and would like to read the FAQ.
