It is up to Dr. Mills to update those pages. He has apparently
updated the parent page, but not yet the pages that it used to refer
There's not much we can do about this. With the assistance of
Dr. Mills, we have moved most of the operational content from
www.ntp.org over to ntp.isc.org, and we are putting up appropriate
automatic redirections in those cases. But we have never had the
ability to update Dr. Mills' pages within his own private webspace.

Google makes a point of ignoring all this kind of stuff, and if
you find a way to hijack their system, they take a very dim view of
what you've done and your Google ranking usually gets depressed very
far below what it otherwise would have been.
Trust me, you *really* don't want to get into a ranking war with them.
