Where did the5k.org go?

I was looking for some coding ideas the other day, and I remembered the5k.org. But it's gone! The internet archive doesn't have the any of the entries. The original site of the movement seems to be abandoned as well. Is there another place I could find the entries?

Darn. It was a great competition. This says some, but not all, entries are here. A Google search uncovered a mirror of one entry, and may have more. There might be more information at this Yahoo group.

#1 was one of the minds behind the5k.org, so I'm sure you'll be receiving a definitive answer shortly.

You could ping Stewart or Eric and ask them.

I was toying with the idea of a similar competition:
