Why are you waiting for Network Solutions to show a record of it?  They're
just another registrar these days (though they're probably still the largest
because of the huge head start they got).  You probably mean (or SHOULD mean
;-) that you're waiting for the InterNIC to show the registration.
It seems to be showing up for me...

If you want the registration to show up at NSI, you'll have to pay NSI
to move it there (typicly the cost of another domain-year).  Since you
registered it through an RSP that uses OpenSRS, it'll show up at
OpenSRS...  OpenSRS and NSI are at the same level now -- effectively
they're interchangable (except that OpenSRS is better ;-)

It'll usually take about a day before the change gets propogated to
the InterNIC.  Then people will start querying your server.

 Laugh while you can, monkey boy!
