I wonder from which distributors people are getting quantifoil grids. We 
have gotten them from EM sciences and SPI. However this is the second 
time that when trying to place an order we are advised that they are 
back-ordered  and that it will take over 6 months to get them !!. 
Trying to get to the quantifoil, web site (www.quantifoil.com)  gives an 
error (missing link).
It does look to me that the production of quantifoils is very spotty and 
may be prone to disappear altogether. Is there any alternative (other 
than make your own holey grids with randomly distributed holes).
