    If you click on the link you get might get what I'm getting, something called the outdoor world survival school, certainly not Breakaway Survival School.

    I thought it was a spoof at first because IMO it is not well presented.

    Thanks Adi, that's what I wanted, I was thinking of doing another weekend there as I enjoyed the "crack" lastime, it was a good laugh.

    What's this link about then, can someone use another companies name as a website address? Looks like it.

    Anyway, thanks everyone. :super:

    Maybe one is stealing the others website link or something. I dont know all the computer gargon but it would seem like an attempt to steal customers. That said I have never heard of either so what would be the point?

    Thanks Adi, that's wierd.

    I've never heard of the Outdoor world survival school before although after checking Tony's BCUK schools link page it's on there.

    To me it looks a bit sinister, as white buffaloe suggests, even an atempt to redirect potential customers, although that is just my opinion from what I see.
    Just seems not right. :?:

    But, as you say Adi, that's the internet for you.

    I suspect that the domain has just lapsed after not being renewed or they forgot to renew it but you should get automated renewals so it happens less frequently now because checking with whois.nic.uk (which covers .co.uk domains). I got this:

    So if Adi is right on the original registration it seems likely the domains just became available and was taken up and is now web forwarding to the other site. I suspect that breakaway survival could do something if they wanted to as they are a trading company already using that name for a specific purpose. Depends a bit on whether they are a registered company and have any sort of trade name registration etc. But as Adi said it happens all too often. It could have easily been a sleazy pron site

    just had a look at the site "breakawaysurvivalschool", its run it would appear by a bloke called jeff, who as it happens used to be a friend of/ instructor with mick tyler at breakawaysurvival. i seem to recall that they had a parting of the ways several years ago now. i had a check and there also appears to be a picture of jan (2 meters) the dutchman.
