    but passing this one by you all anyway. Got this in my email today:

    Notice: .ORG Registry Transition Scheduled for January 25 - 26
    On January 1, 2003, the Public Interest Registry (PIR) became the new
    registry for the .org domain name extension. PIR will now maintain the
    authoritative directory of all .org domain names.
    Beginning January 25, 2003 at 9:00 a.m. EST, VGRS Registry will disable
    its connection to all registrars for .org to begin the transition
    process. On January 26, 2003 at 6:00 p.m. EST, PIR will re-establish its
    connection with all registrars. However, to ensure all functionality is
    appropriately in place, account modifications to current .org domain
    names cannot be made for approximately 48 hours following the transition.
    During the initial transition period, January 25, 2003 from 9:00 a.m.
    EST until January 26, 2003 6:00 p.m. EST, you will not be able to
    purchase new .org domain name registrations, transfer .org domain names or
    make DNS changes.
    Be assured that this maintenance period will not affect the ability for
    customers to view your Web site, and it will not impact the delivery of
    any of your e-mail.
    Please note that Network Solutions(R), Inc. has no control over this
    registry transition and all registrars will be affected. We appreciate
    your patience as this transition occurs.

    I received a notice for my organization as well. Anyone interested can read more about the present -- and possible future -- changes at: Public Interest Registry

    This isn't a concern at all.. actually it's a good thing. From the early days of the Internet, the .org domains were meant to be for non-profits, clubs, organizations, etc.. While they will not be enforcing this in the future (at least not planned) having a seperate authority over the .org namespace ensures (at least more) impartiality.

    I have an .org domain myself and I'm quite certain there should not be any issues with the transition.
