What happened to the bc1 site at

The site at LBNL is probably down for good now, but the pages are being moved to a new site in a google drive. You can read them here.
A more convenient mirror has been set up with the help of digitalocean and godaddy:
The complex II site is also there:
and the old Berkeley Berry Group page:
