I'm sorry it turned out this way. If anyone has a similar experience contact 
me off list ( though I may not get back to you this week).

Please, to the remaining two assurers, all but one person I assured on that 
night has been registered with the correct details they presented to me.

I sneakly tries to take the domain svana.org and it presents an option 
sjh at wibble.net is potentially in change of this domain (from whois). Did he 
(not?) assure you?

You probably because 2hgt.svana.org is a subdomain of a registered domain this 
prevents it from being registered. Make sense? After all we don't want people 
registering netbanking.anz.com (which would be hard until dns spoofing 
techniques came out).
