I should add here.  IN the last 48 hours I've had 11 requests from the USA,
Canada, UK, Philipines, Japan and who knows where the rest came from,
asking to join IRSC and what is involved in setting up a Root Server.

Seems the expansion and deployment I was going to raise from AURSC members
has now turned into a massive global support network.

I think things are drastically going to change.

Such a shame CCA, in partiular, haven't actually asked to join.  I'd
welcome them with open arms.  It could save them considerable cost and
benefit their users greatly.

And will appear on the GIAW web site very soon :)

Conservative figures based on the feedback of a number of the ISPs involved
- in partiular some corporate networks in the USA.

And we all share the data!

Hey IRSC might also be the worlds first Shared Registry!

Why not?  Because some (if not most) of those objecting had a hard enough
time getting their DNS servers to work in the first place :)

Talking of jokes, I wonder why POKEY keeps being used as an example, yet
SHEESH never rates a mention?  Is it because SHESSH is now published in
40,000 issues of the Domain Name Handbook?

The Internet is UNCENTRAL.  If everyone didn't cooperate there woudl be no
internet :)
