Another great bit of trivia I've learnt recently is that The Guardian own the url - it just re-directs to

(The Grauniad is the slang name given to The Guardian by Private Eye, due to the very high level of typos that used to appear in the paper.)

Smart thinking by The Guardian to own the domain - you wouldn't want a rival to own it!

I just did a Whois search and it appears that they've accepted the name to the newspaper since 2003.

Once more it expires in 2011... no doubt when the paper goes automated.

Warm Regards
