[Biopython-announce] [Open-bio-l] Problem with biopython.org domain

I manage or am the admin/technical/billing account holder for 24 
domains, among them most of the open-bio.org ones.

Biopython.org is one that I do not own. Actually since NetSol is 
offering to let me change DNS maybe I'm the technical contact - have to 
wait and see on this. Normally for domains I control netsol starts email 
nagging me constantly - never got emails about this one.

However, Networksolutions allows *anyone* with a payment method to renew 
any domain for any reason.

I've renewed biopython.org for a 2-year term, paying out of pocket like 
I do for all OBF domains so our $$ stays in our bank account.

The site should be back up soonish. I can't change the DNS entry that 
points the website to the expired splash page until netsol processes the 

Upcoming domain expiration dates:

biomoby.org will expire Oct 1
bior.org will expire Nov 5
biosoap.org will expire Oct 9
