    Yes you guys are right of course ::)
    Before I started getting these Emails, I never gave this domain a second thought... now that I keep receiving them, I can't stop thinking about it, thinking that I must have it, but at a bargain price since I don't really need it. Funny how the mind works sometimeso_O

    Seriously though, stuff giving namejet any money. If the name is dropping you just need to watch it on godaddy. If there is no interest you can hand reg it when it drops. If there is then you need to use the auction service.

    Place your backorder through pool.com which are the most successful drop catcher. Check namejet to make sure it's not on their exclusive list. The list of deleting domains will be available at pool also.

    Thank you Horshack!
    It's not on namejet's exclusive list, nor is it on the deleted/pendingdelete of pool.

    From memory the domain name stays in pending delete status for 5 days before it is released. Sometimes the registrars grab them and auction them off first.

    The domain has gone from Domain Status: pendingDelete (for about 2 weeks) to Domain Status:redemptionPeriod
    This makes a bit of a mockery of the system...useless!:(

    You may find its the result of the drop system and inter-registrar agreements. Keep your eye on it as it should drop.

    It depends on the registrar, but usually it will take about 75 days after expiry before it becomes "pendingDelete" in which it will take 5 days to drop about 5am EST.

    Keep an eye on it, I bet it will switch from redemptionPeriod to pendingDelete around the 10th of Feb and then drop on the 16th of feb around 5am EST .
