I cannot reach http://www.mathworks.com for about 2 weeks. I'm missing the online documentation very much.
The error message is cute: The browser is forwarded automatically to http://www.mathworks.de/error/noindex.html, where I am told:
Page Not Found
We apologize for the inconvenience. The link you followed is no longer valid. The MathWorks Web site is continually being updated, and we have either removed or relocated the page that you requested.
I really hope, that www.mathworks.com has neither been removed nor relocated. Does somebody know when it might re-appear?
20-Oct-2011 Fixed colon typo. Even the MathWorks.com link on top of this window forwards me to the error page at the German MathWorks.de.
21-Oct-2011 I've tried to contact TMW using the "inform the webmaster" link on the error page. Unfortunately the mail server of MathWorks cannot deliver mails to webmaster(at)mathworks dot com because the user is unknwon.
23-Oct-2011 I'm forwarded to the UK-Error page when I try to follow this link:
But this works:
The problem concern the standard installation of Firefox 7.0.1, no plugsins, noScript disabled. It works with the Internet Explorer!
24-Oct-2011 Solved! The problem concered only me and only the www.mathworks.com pages. The smallest intersection set are my cookies. Deleting all cookies let the problem disappear.
Afterwards I could not use my password (written on real paper!) to login into my MathWorks account. But after asking for a new one, I'm a full member of the internet again.
26-Oct-2011 Unsolved again. Now I get the "The page you were looking for doesn't exist." page when I try to get http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/. Today even deleting the cookies does not help. Again my MathWorks account password got invalid and I had to ask for a new one.
I could reach this page through www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/ -> Choosing a specific link in "Recent questions" -> My Questions. But hitting the "Answers" link in the top of the page claims, that the page does not exist again.

I know changes have been made with the way the visitor is routed to country pages. In our case, that going to mathworks.com routes to mathworks.de. I am not aware about the technical implementation though. I actually was just interested how to have the old behaviour back, as I prefer to send .com links. I selected that I am in the US (top of page) and that's it.
I suspect, that your issue is connected to that change. Please send an email to webmasters at mathworks dot com with a description (inluding yor browser and OS info).
I have had no trouble reaching mathworks.com or any page at Answers. Your link resolves to:
which does not work for me, but looks simply wrong.
