GAF Web Site Down
« on: February 15, 2008, 10:58:13 am »
It appears that the domain name registration has expired. Over a month ago I brought this to the attention of the gentleman that owns the domain name. It is something that unfortunately I have no control over. I have just finished notifying the people responsible for the registration and asked them to renew it ASAP.

This isn't the first time that's happened. Can we buy it from them so that we have control over making sure that it gets re-registered in a timely manner?

I believe J  Locksley or Joe Bethancourt, which may be the same person (alias Sam Hane), owns the domain name. The domain expired yesterday. It appears it was possibly renewed today but the site still does not work. It may take 24 hours for the domain to get propagated across the Internet again.

This was very unfortunate since one of our members is involved with a "Remember the Maine" event this weekend and information about it is on our web site. I mentioned this event on the SASS Wire and people can't find it. :'(

Crap!!!!

I guess the 'rodents' reference worked!  ;)
