   i don't know the exact cost to rescue the 
sf-lug.net domain name, it's on the order of 
$100 for from one to three years, i forget. 
   i forget for the reason that it seems no 
one has a good-enough-for-me argument for 
retaining control of the name. I.e., nathan's 
arguments that some bad guy would sully the 
sf-lug name didn't strike me strongly enough 
that i would part with my money. 
   so if you feel strongly about the need to 
retain control, please pipe up and articulate 
that argument. 
   ron's offer is gracious, and i accept in 
spirit, which for now seems enough.
