Re: Broken domain statistics...

Except for the fact that BEFORE-USE still hasn't been implemented :( In fact, I've often received the "Please ACK/NAK this request" letter *AFTER* receiving a message saying "Registration for the domain name shown below has been completed." NAK's rarely work in these cases unless I make a phone call to stop it. > > -Phil -- John-David Childs (JC612) Enterprise Internet Solutions System Administration 8707 E Florida Ave Suite 814 & Network Engineering Denver, CO 80231 http://www.nterprise.net As of this^H^H^H^H next week, passwords will be entered in Morse code.
