Towards the end of March, M-IT agreed not to delete all
unpaid COM.AU domain names on March 17, 1997.  Instead,
they moved to:

a) Domain names registered after October 8, 1996, but as
   yet unpaid, would require payment by 30/04/97 or be
   deregistered on 01/05/97.

b) Domain names registered before October 8, 1996 would
   need to notify M-IT that they are "active", and would
   be left alone until Oct 8, 1997.

c) Domain names register after October 8, 1996, and paid,
   would remain "licensed".

Part of this agreement was that M-IT would provide some
method for us to find out which of these classes domain
names fell into.

In early April, a web page was set up at:


which provided a "license status" check.  Unfortunately,
it only classes domain names as "licensed" or "unlicensed".

So, once again, we have a situation in which some domain
names are going to be deregistered in a few days.  What 
we do not have is any way of determining which ones it
will be.

My desired outcome is to simply hand M-IT a cheque for the
domain names that they registered after Oct 8, and are about
to delete, without having to go back to court again.
