Website is down and theo's email bounced back.
There is policy in place now to avoid that. I believe you have either 7 or 30 (can't remember) days to buy it back if it lapses. I think 30. They have to hold the name for that period of time before it becomes available again. I only know this as this happened to one of the departments at work (a government entity no less).Bummer thing is if you let your domain expire, it gets picked up by a vulture who will extort tons of money if you want to buy it back. This happened to my happybob.com site. Really domain registrars should have some policy in place to give owners a bit of a grace period and 1st priority to re-up, not sell to scumbag domain campers.
I have to assume this is what happened to Hartman(?)...
