Sure, but as the commercial goes: "Where is the beef?"

I ain't seen none.

Great, please reread what this Secretariat puppet wrote the other day
about .NA's financial contribution.

And, as I have been saying in the past, where is my SPARC?

Good show. But is that really what is needed?

I have asked numerous times about Registry software. 

Instead of wasting our money on ICANN and those empire builders (the
ones who have the gall to tell us whether to vote or not) at the
Secretariat, which fortunately is temporary only, we should sit down
and design a data base structure (using PHP so one can use MySQL,
Oracle or the SAP DB), and have someone hack a web front end and a
perl/tk management module (to generate the zones, quite trivial, even
yours truly has managed to hack a piece that does that automatically,
not even patching bind to hook to MySQL). One side effect of doing
this would be that we can unify whois access if desired.
