    Cisco/Linksys is "Sponsoring" the .LAN TLD
    by Anonymous on Monday March 21 2005, @03:50AM (#14693)
    "which strings"?

    Cisco/Linksys is "Sponsoring" the .LAN TLD

    Note: It is in millions of wireless routers
    in people's homes and small offices.

    ICANN would never be able to approve the .LAN
    TLD because that would risk the "stability"
    of the .NET. People are already using the .LAN
    TLD and Cisco continues to update their firmware
    in their routers. It is a small step to make
    the second-level .LAN names to be part of a
    world-wide name-space.

    When Bill Gates Decides What TLDs to Sponsor
    by Anonymous on Monday March 21 2005, @04:18AM (#14694)
    When Bill Gates Decides What TLDs to Sponsor... ...he will certainly let everyone know when
    they see them burned into millions of CDs for

    Do you really think Bill Gates would ask ICANN
    for **permission** to put something into Windows ?

    He is a young guy but does not have that many
    years to wait...

    Will .DOS be his choice ?

    .LAN Does not exist

    Hey Troll, why do you keep posting about .lan? It does not exist. Stop pestering us with your posts and go away.

    Happy Anniversary - Verisign is Celebrating
    by Anonymous on Monday March 21 2005, @09:50AM (#14703)
    Verisign is laughing all the way to the bank.
    Their non-profit ICANN division has helped to
    make sure they continue to grow .COM and reap
    the rewards which are passed on to ICANN.

    Isn't it great the way they make people think
    they are at each other's throats ?
    It is all a big farce to prevent people from
    noticing they have prevented competition.

    There sure are a lot of suckers taken in by ICANN.

    "Some applicants did receive a "go" from ICANN's"
    by Anonymous on Tuesday March 22 2005, @05:59AM (#14710)
    Some applicants did receive a "go" from ICANN's board .TRAVEL is a "go" and is expanding

    Register your Name-Travel.COM name (*)
    and your Name.Travel name

    Join the Market Trial for .TRAVEL

    Check out http://www.RegisterFLY.com

    (*) It is good to have a .COM name behind the
    scenes to ensure reliability and stability.
