!@#$ Network Solutions has ever-so-graciously consented to TRANSFER MY FUCKING DOMAINS. That's fanciers.com and catshow.com taken care of, anyway. Now I must tackle ahrn.org and kochlani.com, and then I can see the back of Verisign for good.
They WOULD NOT transfer mine, so I called VISA and halted payment, reversing the annual fee they'd charged me. VISA agreed that they do NOT have the right to block me from going to someone else after I've paid them.
If they had LET me go, they could have kept the money.
So my domain was down for 3 months, then I got hooked up with Pair.nic. I'm not totally thrilled with them because they refuse to host nudity, but they have the lowest prices so I can't argue too loudly.
I'm just waiting now until I buy some land this winter and then I'll hook fiber up to it and buy a block of IP numbers.
'hate' as in not real hate, but really don't like.
