Yup just got it again - here are the steps.

Go to http://www.openoffice.org

Click on the item 'I want to download now'

This expands the entry and identifies my OS a Linux/DEB..great.

Click on 'Download now'.

This then displays the page at:
http://www.openoffice.org/download/contribute.html?download=bouncer&product%3DOpenOffice.org%26os%3Dlinuxinteldeb%26lang%3Den-US%26version%3D3.3.0

A few seconds later it changes to the page in the screen shot.
http://download.services.openoffice.org/files/notfound-bouncer.html

Just tried again, same result.
