John, Be advised that you will probably soon receive an email from Network Solutions regarding the transfer of the EVOLT.ORG domain to OpenSRS. Marlene (as the current Admin contact) had to jump through several hoops in order to just get NetSol to *accept* the transfer *request*, and I suspect there may be more we have to do before it is actually approved. Marlene had to log into the their web interface and acknowledge that the transfer request was valid. Then she had to supply an auth code that they emailed not to her, but to me, at the *billing* contact address. I had to forward her this code so that she could complete her part. Then I got a notice (at the billing address treasurer at evolt.org) full of FUD warning me that "someone" had requested that my domain be transferred, advising me that this may be due to my misunderstanding a faux renewal notice form a competitor, but assuring me that TO DENY the transfer, I need do *nothing* but ignore the email, and the transfer would be denied after 96 hours had elapsed. I managed to confirm the transfer via the web link provided, but I fully expect that now you as the tech contact may receive a similar "Default-Deny" confirmation notice, at your <john at gn.apc.org> address, to which you may *have* to respond, in order for them to exhaust every possible excuse to prevent our transfer away from their corporate clutches :-) So please keep an eye out for it, and jump through your approval hoop too, if necessary!
