What's up with Quantifoil grids

I wonder how or from which distributors people are getting quantifoil 
grids. In the past 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 making your own holey grids with randomly distributed holes).



PS: Sorry if this has been discussed before.It seems that I was out from 
the 3Dem list since I don't know when.
