    IOD Website Out To Lunch

    Maybe Ambler can tell his customers (.WEB customers that is) why IOD's site has been down the whole day.

    Funding for the .SEX TLD ?
    by Anonymous on Monday April 26 2004, @05:51AM (#13438)
    That should be a good start at funding for the .SEX TLD.

    Veri$ign could be the Registry.

    or, did Veri$ign make a secret deal to NOT put the .SEX TLD in their hint (root) servers ?

    User #3264 Info
    Phil Sbarbaro, our head litigator at Network Solutions, now retired, had as our #1 strategic legal goal NEVER to get a domain name defined as property. And he was successful, up through the Virginia Supreme Court.

    His agrument was quite compelling from a legal perspective. I wonder what went wrong in the sex.com case (besides some rather egrigious facts) or did VRSN just pussy out?

    This is a test of the Root ® Operator
    by Anonymous on Tuesday April 27 2004, @03:36AM (#13441)
    This is a test of the Root ® Operator

    Most people do not see the hidden DOT on the far right of a domain name.
    That is the hidden Root ® Operator being used in POST-FIX mode.


    When the Root ® Operator is used in IN-FIX mode, it causes the two adjacent names to be Reversed.
    That is why it is called the Reverse ® Operator.

    is really
    the names get reversed before the look-up.

    In PRE-FIX mode, the Root ® Operator
    looks like @ in e-mail addresses.


    That is called the RULES Operator.
    It means, michael "rules" www.icannwatch.org.
