There is currently plug.linux.org.au, supplied by Linux Australia
and hence relatively permanent. And plug.org.au, which was
registered in the days when .org.au domains were free and permanent.
This changed on the 1st of July 2002, and all .org.au domains were
set to expire in 2 years from then unless they were transferred to
another registrar. Unfortunately, the email address on the domain
is a past president who hasn't responded to emails.

Both domains get used, so it's in our best interests to keep both
alive :)
