Hmm, that looks like DNS error. My repository is still up and online...
debs.astraw.com is actually a "CNAME" record, which aliases another
domain name. The canonical domain name uses a dynamic DNS to point to a
dynamically assigned IP addresses. Your system (probably in your DNS
name resolution) must be having some issue with some of that.
Unfortunately, you can't just plug in the IP address, because I'm using
Apache virtual hosting to serve a website at "debs.astraw.com"
differently from other websites.

Anyhow, here's what I get, hopefully it will help you fix your DNS issue.

$ host debs.astraw.com
debs.astraw.com is an alias for astraw-office.kicks-ass.net.
astraw-office.kicks-ass.net has address 131.215.28.162
debs.astraw.com is an alias for astraw-office.kicks-ass.net.
debs.astraw.com is an alias for astraw-office.kicks-ass.net.

Eek, I replaced that with the new one location and some more info.

I'm planning on keeping them around for a while -- at least until numpy,
scipy, and matplotlib get integrated into my flavor-of-the-year
Debian/Ubuntu release in a sufficiently up-to-date version.
