It google seems to have simply "deindexed" the site. Other search 
engines find the content just fine, but google won't find anything from 
the squeak.org domain even if you specify site:squeak.org. Subdomains are 
still indexed by google.

Assuming no one has registered the site on google's search console[1], a 
trusted person could try to add the site as their own (requires 
coordination with the web/box admins team) and see if it can be added to 
the index again.
