I'm Ryan Lowe, a Software Engineering graduate living in Ottawa, Canada. I like agile software development and Ruby on Rails.
I write this blog in Canadian English and don't use a spell checker. Typos happen.

beernut.ca in Limbo
I might lose my other domain (beernut.ca) for a bit. I just got a notice from CIRA saying that it has been suspended for the next 30 days even though I did renew it June 30th with reggie.ca. After that time the registration will be cancelled.
So who screwed up? I'm pretty sure reggie.ca is supposed to re-register my domain with CIRA on my behalf. I will contact reggie.ca tomorrow. Things shouldn't go bad on beernut.ca in the next 30 days but if they do I apologize.
Update: Tuesday 10:58am beernut.ca is not down. Its DNS entry, maintained by CIRA, is suspended. I'm pretty sure this is reggie.ca's fault -- and it is quite unprofessional. If I were eBay, I'd be losing millions of dollars right now.
Update: Wednesday 10:31am CIRA confirmed on the phone that it is reggie.ca's responsibility to contact CIRA about renewing the domain. I've contacted reggie.ca by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and their contact web form and haven't heard anything back yet. beernut.ca is still unaccessible.
Update: Wednesday 2:01pm CIRA sent me a notice saying that beernut.ca has been renewed. I assume this means that some sort of action was taken by reggie.ca, though I have not heard from them. beernut.ca should be available again soon.Posted at July 08, 2003 at 12:56 AM EST
