I have several domains through an OpenSRS reseller and can attest for the 
reliability of the system. The works are OK once you understand them. The 
cool thing is that you can setup profiles and delegate responsibility for 
the admin, tech, & billing contacts to another profile. Handy when 
registering domains for clients & you want to retain some technical 
control. The renewal notices should get mailed out at 60, 30, 15, and 1 day 
intervals. I've gotten all of mine, right up to the "your domain expires 
tomorrow" one. ;-)
