I think the real question becomes, do your providers require you to register your prefixes? In that case, I would recommend sticking with your provider registry. They can query it realtime. They usually only mirror the other registries once a day. This can mean some significant lag if you are planning on making an announcement change. Aside from that, it's good practice and being a good net.citizen to register them. It helps provide accurate routing and contact data should someone need to contact you about a problem. - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from [email protected] clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
