I'm not posting this to sound snippy or anything, but we had a small thread 
last week (I think) about this.  Check the archives for the subject - My 
chat with Network Solutions.

Basically, NS will release the name when it is good and ready.  I have seen 
threads on message boards saying they have been waiting since mid 2000 for 
a name to be released.
