Their server may be down.
"ping mcfeelys.com" results in "request timed out" instead of "unknown host".

Last I looked, they were in Lynchburg, VA. I cannot even think of a rationale for Jim Ray moving them to Buffalo. Site is up and working. Did you try www.mcfeelys.com?

Doesn't mean they didn't have their web servers in NY though. Lots of sites are still knackered, even today.

NeoTrace shows the server to be located in Virginia. It is now reachable from Houston ... wasn't for the better part of the day.

Wrong state. That's Tennessee. L'burg, VA is the not always happy home of Jerry Falwell, though.

Human beings have amazing ways to rationalize their actions- a dry county with a distillery. Reminds me of the palestinian that was going to put in a casino on palestinian land- before the latest wave of craziness. He accepted that since gambling and drinking alcohol were against the Koran, he'd use israeli's behing the gaming tables and bar. That way, the muslims were "clean". Go figure. Pat

Patrick Mitchel responds:

I think the booze making preceded the dryness. Blue noses take over after a country is totally cured of any wildness...unfortunately. I forget the dates of the Whisky Rebellion, but...ah. 1794. That was a rebellion to beat excise taxes on smaller whisky producers down to what was charged larger producers. IIRC, it was 6 cents a gallon for large distilleries, 9 cents for smaller.
No matter how much things change!

You can drink it there, you cannot buy it there... The employees are given a small amount periodically.

Well, I was born and raised in Lynchburg, VA.
And by comparison, Buffalo seems like a magical fricking wonderland.

Received my McFeely's catalog Thursday. Ordered on line yesterday. Received an order confirmation email this morning. If they're out of business they're still taking money...

I vaguely recall a similar thread about McFeely's about 6 months ago. Apparently the site was down at _that_ time and some people started to wonder. FWIW.
