The domain has been picked up on the drop and registered by someone else (it 
is a very very nice name)

I didnt notice it because I had not tried to load the website externally to 
my own system (I am an ISP so I use my own dial ports externally), I use the 
website when I teach design at Tafe for student resouces .. and only found 
out what had happened when I tried to load the site from Tafe.

I would expect that registrars should be required to send renewal notices to 
the registrant. I suppose I will have to check if it is part of their 
responsibilty. In this case they did send them, but not to me.

I am only asking because I cant get past their level 1 support, and I dont 
really want to lodge a formal complaint with AUDA without exhausting all 
avenues first.

I personally believe they should find me a replacement name of the same 

Cheers Tony
