Anyone know if Essex Minis Australia is still operating? Website has been down for a number of days?

Well, he donated vouchers to Landwaster, and sent David Lawrence some army packs for sale, so I assume yes. Ray is a one-man band, so maybe he just has some computer problems. Hopefully nothing more serious than that.

Thanks Khusrau, probably just a tech issue as you suggest. I will keep checking in every now and then to see if it's up and running

I bought a couple of things from them over the phone two weeks ago. Just give them a call if you can.

I was talking to Ray week before last and mentioned it, while we were on the phone he checked and he could see it. Very Odd!

Maybe Ray needs to contact his web hosting service to check. Be bad for him to miss out on Xmas trade.

I also get a fail…

"Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at

worth checking – a whois query, and a ping can't resolve the address, so it looks like the name hosting has failed.

trying to ping the nameservers fails (ns1 & ns2), so that looks to be the issue. It can't resolve the name as the nameservers listed are no longer valid.
