I'd say you're spot on with that assessment, at least in my case ;)

I went to bookmark that link and eyeball it a little... I seem to
recall seeing a sample menu before, not sure if this was it.... The
page wouldn't load.  Github did, however, show me a cute picture of a
unicorn :P

Their status page says they're up, and I'll try again later, but do I
have the correct link there?  Regardless, I thought I'd also suggest
adding a link to your samples under the "See also" section on the menu
doc page ( http://ipxe.org/cmd/menu ), perhaps even to all of them.
Sample code is always helpful to beginners!
