The current page at tfn.net seems to be telling people that they are shutting down at the end of the month, current users should move their sites/email away to places like Yahoo... and that the domain name will remain their property.
That doesn't seem to match up with what you're saying, so I'd probably check into that more before putting too much effort into setting anything up.
Especially since it's a 3 letter domain. Unless you're shelling out a lot of money, I probably wouldn't count on that being included.
I'd say that if you have to get your own domain, you're basically starting from scratch, since no one would get to keep their current email or web addresses.
Sounds like a hassle. I'm not sure what you'd get out of the deal, but you might just be better off starting your own thing. Maybe you could get them to link to you and refer users to you, instead of Yahoo & Google.
