I don't think someone's watching you and then stilling them. When you look up a domain name to see if it's available from sources other then internic...the data is not reliable. Goto to http://www.internic.net and check out the domains in question and it will tell you who got that domain, which will include company, name, and address. That will settle you down some. Do you think people are watching you why you are working on your computer. If so you've been on the internet to long. Just kidding! I think. Darryl
