+ - .um Domain Meets Demise

Submitted by Dr. Eggman
Dr. Eggman writes: The little used .um internet domain is no more. The domain was used, or rather unused, for US minor outlying islands and the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute had grown tired of maintaining it. This announcement comes as last month ICANN began taking comments on deletion of outdated suffixes. Among the top of the list? .su, the internet domain of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union's .su may prove harder to remove however, as Google still lists 3 million .su sites. Thought The Soviet Union had disbanded? That's what they wanted you to think.
