The site is working for me even now.
Unfortunately, the site hasn't really been updated much over the past
couple of years and when I e-mailed some people on the Programatica
project about the status of House & Osker I never got anything back.
The biggest obstacle you may find when trying to set up House & hOp is
that hOp is based upon a modified version of a very old GHC and from
the last time I looked at it the GHC runtime has changed enough that
making a new hOp will be non-trivial.
