Lab Web Service URL down

The first project in the hands on labs for Unity 2.0 calls a webservice that appears to be down at the moment.

This page is coming up with the response: "This Web page is unavailable"

Yeah, it's down. It's the fate of every example that accesses a web service - the owner of that service will take it down shortly after you publish your example.

We'll have to find another one somewhere, but I have no idea when.

Not as big deal as I thought when I read a bit more of the documentation. RandomStockQuoteService can be used in place of the service that accesses the above. Hopefully others are better readers than I am. :)
