Welcome back to those of you that have wonder whatever happened to my original domain victoryong.com since Dec. 2007. Well, to cut to the chase, an old registrar had tried to rip me off by disabling my online renewal options. My domain expires and they request for more money to "unlock" it. Anyhow, eventually through a higher level, they released it and it was immediately snatched up by an accomplice who ignores my emails to sell it back to me. Anyhow, they can keep that name if they so choose, I thought my new domain victoryong.ca means a lot more as I live in this great country of ours.
