I started this thread is only partially due to you not currently being a
SAC member.  It mostly has to do with you being the only one who
absolutely knows the password for the account (Steve's not so sure any

My feeling, is that SAC as an organization should get its act together
regarding the web site.  If something were to happen to you and Steve did
not have enough info to reestablish ownership, the club would be in a
world of hurt.

Actually you have all the info necessary to call-in when you access the
account.  You would be walked through getting that info.

If the account were a car, having access to the account would not only
mean having the keys, but the title too.

What you're referring to is a Whois search.  One example is
whois.godaddy.com, another dnsstuff.com.  Because privacy is being used,
there is a second account on domainsbyproxy.com that is holding e-mail
for SAC's domain.  This can be set to auto-forward if needed.

There is a line between reminding and harassing.  I set it at one
reminder last year (Feb 22) and you replied four days later that you were
sending a check that day.  I brought the subject up with Rick at least
one time (maybe several) but I don't know whether he sent you a reminder
or not.

Anyway, 2006 is in the past.  You just need to pay for 2007.  :-)
