Yeah, I understand the concern there.  All I could guarantee was my word
as a linux geek that I would not use the domain for Evil Purposes.  That
may or may not mean anything to anybody except me.  The other thing is
that it would be sorta tied with ninjatech, so at least as long as
ninjatech is around it would be around(ninjatech is my "get paid for doing
stuff I like plan")  So that would give it some longevity.

squeamish about asking a corp that I don't know somebody in to deal with

what does it take to do this sort of thing on an international level?  I'm
no legal expert either.  What would it take to form an international
non-profit organization?  Heh, what do we do?
