    I wasn't able to get to their website today either.

    Any products mentioned in my posts have been endorsed by their manufacturer.

      At one time, many moons ago they all took vacation at once.

      I don't know if this is still the policy, but this was before the web catalog.

      Oh and it's HOT in Nebraska , and humid, so it's NOT a dry heat.

        I've bought a ton of stuff from them through the years, I hope they're okay.

          Their server blew up a couple months ago. Could be the same sort of problem. They were offline for a week. Maybe they have internet phones, too. I just got stuff from them last week.

            Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 8000401a'

            Server.CreateObject Failed

            /includes/common.asp, line 26

            The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password.

            Looks like they are running (or trying to run) windows and it blew up on them. I bet they will be back soon.

                It's probably just server problems but I know they're running slow in the "office" too. I placed an order on 7/18 and it wasn't shipped until 7/25. I just recieved it 7/30 (Wednesday).

                  the really weird thing is when I tried to phone them it took a loooong time to actually ring and then it went to a busy signal (the fast kind,) indicating overloaded calls in the area.
                  I love these guys. I too hope all is well, BESIDES, I need some stuff!

                        They are back on line.

                        I would rather have tools that I never use, than not have a tool I need.

                          Flooding, where at in Ne. I haven't heard that, nor did I see it on the local news.
