I could never get the site to work for me, numerous times, computers and browsers. Bought some place else.
"I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander
Works fine for me here slightly north of Michael.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

I placed an order yesterday from them. It was painfully slow, but it worked. Some times I had to reload a page and wait, and wait, and wait.
I find the site works about 50% of the time I visit. Great business, though--so I just try again later. Probably the cheap*ss hosting service.
Yep, haven't been able to open this site anywhere in Australia for 6+ months now.
Even when using 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 as DNS servers (U.S. based) it doesn't work, though I dont have trouble resolving the IP, so I am guessing it is blocked outside certain areas.
The name servers are ns3.planetnoc.net and ns4.planetnoc.net

I managed to open the site about three weeks ago.
It's not a problem on our end, we're reaching the U.S.
In my case I've been trying it every now and then for months, and it's always 'down', from work, from my phone interne, from public library, from internet cafe, from home internet.
Could be some ISP issues. Some entire hosts/subnets are blocked by some ISPs because of some bad sites. I get 9 hops of goodness, followed by infinite * * * when tracerouting, and i also get infinite timeouts when pinging, but i can easily access the site, so one might think it has something to do with port scanning blockers or whatever.
It seems to be back, I could reach it just before. Must have been some temporary hickup or something ...
Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.
