NTRS Is Online Again - Sort Of

Keith's note: If you are outside the NASA firewall and try to access NTRS you still get this notice:

"The NASA technical reports server will be unavailable for public access while the agency conducts a review of the site's content to ensure that it does not contain technical information that is subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations and that the appropriate reviews were performed. The site will return to service when the review is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

But if you try to gain access internally and are a civil servant or contractor you can register and then gain access. But wait, wasn't access by contractors supposed to have been the problem in the first place? Why doesn't a warning appear on the screen that tells contractor employees who are citizens of "China, Burma, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Uzbekistan" not to bother?
