I just pinged it.

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=197ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=192ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=196ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=195ms TTL=48

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 192ms, Maximum = 197ms, Average = 195ms is pingable.

PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=49 time=231.448 ms

--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 231.448/231.448/231.448/0.000 ms
I was able to ping it, as well. Are you behind a firewall? Are you trying to ping from a Windows or *nix machine? What command did you execute?
