Since you know that I am willing to speak to Sam and you are not...
...you could have asked me any old time, to "do something" ... and I would
have done it then instead of now. I consider whining about the past to be
a spilt milk problem.
The only answer to spilt milk is to clean it up, not kvetch about it.

No, I think your bad attitude on the point has nothing to do with VA. Let
me deal with it and de-stress for a few.

I didn't say *my domain's* internic record. I said *my* internic record!
Whether I use them for my own domains or not, if any client wants me to
be an internic contact for them, I want my nic ID to work. Comparing
apples and orange trees :)
Thanks to my sysadmin contacts I have a wide variety of choices to consider
for alternates as regards whole domains. But that's offtopic.
If I turn my interest toward wanting Sam to give me the domain, the easiest
part would be if he makes me one or all of the role contacts, and for that,
I need a working Internic ID or they will surely screw it up. I do not
think I could convince him to give you the domain, even if I thought that
were the best tack, and at the moment, I do not.
So it may be madness, but it's *my* madness, and yes, I do have a method
in there somewhere.
