Re: Internic address allocation policy

Everyone has a problem getting address space.  That's a fact of life with
the current IP allocation policy.

My suggestion is to ask for a /18, with the rest of the /16 reserved for
your use.  Religiously SWIP or RWhois your allocations.  Get network
engineering documents from your customers _before_ you assign address 
space.  Yes, all of the above is a pain in the ass.  But that's life.

And lastly, don't take your frustration out on Kim Hubbard or anyone else
at the InterNIC (and yes, I'm guilty).  They're just enforcing the policy.
It's a tough place to be in.

And _please_ keep the lawyers out of this.
