Hello--

I got your name from the Nic as the admin for the above domain "1829.com".
If you're not using it, can I have it for my company, which is called 1829.
It's a small design shop for students and young adults.

Problem:

  The number 1829 is an Autonomous System NUMBER (ASN) in use by the
  Los Alamos National Laboratory associated with an Autonomous
        System NAME (ASN) called NOTES.

        So, you can't have it.

However:

        There is no such thing as Domain NAME 1829.COM. So, you better
  register it quick before someone else gets it. %^)

thanks,

  What's going on here?

NANOGER's,

You better hold on tight to your ASN's!

Thanks,

Phil

Nothing. Looks like he fed "1829" to a "whois" search instead
of "1829.COM"

PS - when I do a whois on some 1, 2, and 3 digit ASN's that are less
than 254, whois gives me an "A" domain in response. There IS
an ASN 10, isn't there?
