Is the adobetes.com server down?
It was available earlier in the week as I was working through the Flex In A Week exercises, but now I can't access the employees.xml file required in Day 1 and Day 2. I am using version 4.6 on Windows 7 Professional using IE 9. When attempting to access the file directly from web browser, I receive an error that 'adobetes.com' server is not available. And when attempting to access from example application, I receive an Error #2032 Stream Error when attempting to access 'http://adobetes.com/f45iaw100/remoteData/employees.xml'
Yes, the server is down and they estimate that it will take anywhere between 24-72 hours when it will be online again.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I have acquired the files that were in this tutorial and have hosted them at adobetes.beammath.com
I hope this is helpful.
You're my hero!
