Comp.Sys.Acorn.Announce loses owlart.co.uk domainBy Chris Williams. Published: 11th Apr 2003, 14:01:27 | Permalink | Printable
It's update-your-bookmarks-time againAndrew Conroy has informed us today that the official comp.sys.acorn.announce website is pulling up anchors and setting sail to the new domain owlart.net following a reported messy mix up of ownership of the current owlart.co.uk domain.
As chief moderator of csa.announce, the moderated news group for RISC OS only press releases and announcements, Andrew told us today via email that the ownership of his owlart.co.uk domain has been apparently registered to the wrong organisation and despite possessing the necessary paperwork, Andrew's battling to get it back (compare his address to the one registered with owlart.co.uk). Andrew is hoping to get his domain back in a few months time but expects the owlart.co.uk website to cease working at the end of this month.
Prompted by this extraordinary suituation, Andrew's moving csa.announce related stuff over to the owlart.net address, which isn't live at the moment but will soon be and will stay that way. To submit an article for csa.announce, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org (don't forget to cc us a copy too). Alternatively to send general correspondance, email email@example.com.
Also whilst on the subject of comp.sys.acorn.announce, backup moderator Nick Boalch has today declared that he is "moving away from RISC OS completely".
New csa.announce site and, soon to disappear for a while, the old site.
