I've just re-opened a support ticket to Namehog to see what's happening with a domain I'm transferring to them.
It took literally a couple of minutes to answer it and reassure me that because it's a global transfer from America, it will be sorted by "close of play tomorrow" and it'll be ready to rock and roll by Sunday morning.
Namehog are wonderful hosts... just need to find a new counter now to put into the page ready for uploading on Sunday and Bravenet will be getting my custom for that because I've used them for years too!
It means that I can go back to inviting on Monday and get back into my normal routine... I've been bored out of my tree this week! lol
