4 days to go...

Post by larkim » Wed Feb 15, 2012 1:07 pm

According to whois.net, the 3view domain is due for renewal (or expiry) on 19th Feb 2012. I'm fully expecting it to disappear at that point (I'm amazed that the servers powering the website are still funded / ongoing).

Is there anything that is needed to be "harvested" from that site before it all goes dark? I know others have pulled off some of the firmware files, not sure if there is anything else that is of interest?

Thanks for the info --- I think I have ever version of the files as they appeared but didn't use them.

Not been re-registered yet, so I'm guessing it will expire at midnight...
..have to wait and see what, if anything stops working on the box.

P.s.
I believe the firmware files and some of the services live at the Simply Global TV address, which doesn't expire until 2014

Your right; interesting - re-registered today, the day after it ran out....

All of the contact info on the registration points to the address below. Anyone know if that's what they used to begin with?

Note

: if someone else has registered it, it may take a few days for any new ip addresses assigned to propagate to DNS servers, so we might not know the fate of the domain until then.

I believe that the admin and technical contacts listed haven't changed as a result of the renewal of the domain. Of course, it's entirely possible the domains were automatically renewed by some automated process (I've used registrar's that automatically renew unless you specifically tell them not to).
