Gentle readers who might happen to be using unique IP addresses for your
Web hosting customers, or for other virtualized services such as FTP,
POP3/IMAP, SSL, etc, you need to be aware of ARIN's recent policy change.
Basically, they won't give you addresses anymore.  They're accepting
comments.  A lively discussion has begun, as usual.
