Default What happened to Stormer Hobbies

I've been trying to get to the Stormer Hobbies site for a couple weeks now and can't seem to bring it up. Are they still in business?

The site works for me. Stormer is by far my favorite online hobby shop.

Try using the IP to resolve the site, maybe your DNS server has a bad entry for stormer.

Wow, Interesting. I go to a lot of sites and it's the only one I can't bring up either by name or IP. They must have gotten on a block list here somehow

I notice their site is almost always unreachable late at night. My guess is the server is doing backups, but that seems like a LOT of downtime. Are they writing down all the bits by hand?
