There WILL NOT be any mandatory re-registration in January or Feburary according
to Robert Elz. What is to happen hasnt been sorted out as far as I am aware.

I personally suggest all domains become up for renewal on the 1st November 1997.
This is only fair. If they attempt to do it at any time before that I will kick
up a stink.. as they have no idea to accuratly figure out when the actual
aniversary is.

Also... not many people responded to my Billing questions.... as in why do they
do only Credit Card Transactions....

How are they going to charge for renewals? I dont have a credit card.. I deal 
with my domains directly.. not through any isp... I certinaly hope I get an
invoice... NOT a demand for a credit card number.

Also.. what happens if NIC info is out of date... who are you going to send
the invoice to?
