This means that Robin is still registered owner. I guess his ISP just 
blocked the domain, but they can't delete the entry before the 
expiration date Spetember, 27.

Yep. Anyway, to ensure that an address will be good for the next

I've registered calmira.de today, and it should be reachable not later 
than Friday (my ISP has a direct line to the .de NIC).
Now, if somebody has got a mirror and is willing to upload the stuff, 
please contact me and I will install an ftp account.

This would be great :-)
