Is Software Hut Still open?

Is Software Hut Still open?
Their website is still there, but I emailed them last week and this week regarding some
 hardware I am interested in, but have not received and answer to either email.

I wonder if I would do better by calling them.

Thanks

I've tried both methods a few times in the past few months - nothing.  :(

I bought Indivision AGA few months back from them. And after small perturbances I've got what I ordered. But I agree that communication is not the best.

The big shame of it, for me, is that softhut is the only place I have found so far with replacement casework...$5 or $10 or so for a full front plastic face piece for the a3000 (which I desperately need).:confused:

I was about to post the same question, but you beat me to the punch! Anyway it is a real shame if Software Hut is not operating. They were such a major retailer back in the day, I used to enjoy looking at there ads when every new Amiga World or other publication came out.

Maybe if enough of us bug them through email and phone calls they will stir awake again.

@ wildstar1063

Software Hut has been their side business for a number of years now - that's probably the main one.

Website is back up.... yesterday it was down for a while though.
I bought a new GVP A1200 accelerator from him about 6 months ago simply using his website to order it. The website stated that I could get some free gifts for ordering on the web. Well, I got the accelerator right away and he even sent some free goodies for the gifts (didn't get what I chose for free gifts). He threw in a few trinkets including a new Tetris game. I did try to email him again shortly afterwards but never got a reply. Maybe try ordering from his site.

A2000HD: 2MB Chip, 128MB Fast, P5:Blizz 2060@50MHz, PCD-50B/4GBCF, XSurf100, RapidRoad, IndiECS, Matze RTG, MiniMegi, CD-RW, SunRize AD516, WB3.9

Call them and leave clear concise return number.  He'll call you back.
