Another DEM repository
This is a story by the beeb which is saying that there is a new repository of 30m global DEM data.
I tried it and found the US site to be down and the JP one to be usable but I got as far as the ordering data set then it said I had to be a verified user. The user verification system was down too. So posting link here in case a) anyone else has better luck or b) I come back after the meeja has stopped reporting about it allowing better access. Looks promising tho.
