Just tried to; HTTP connections time out, traceroute ends in * * *.

Luckily it's been archived for posterity and still available here:
http://web.archive.org/web/20020123192839/http://www.national-isp.org/

Quoting some text from there:
| National ISP Company is a business class BULK EMAIL INTERNET SERVICE
| PROVIDER, (ISP).  Your high volume email ads are sent directly from
| our servers to your recipients.
[..]
| Our ONLY business is providing Internet Access for your email sending.

If it's a joe job, it's a particularly well-executed one, also defacing
the website and eradicating all traces of another company that legitly
used that IP space...

Regards,
