Nope, it didn't (not yet at least). I tried to get it last year when Sam didn't
pay his bill, but of course NetSol doesn't let you get expired domains.
Apparently, he ended up paying the bill eventually.

Nah :-)
(actually, I'm not plotting anything anyway).

I guess the differences are:
1) You are responsible for installfest.*, so it's your problem :-)
