In this case, the "right political connections" means that we go to the ARIN public policy meetings, participate on the ARIN Public Policy mailing list http://lists.arin.net/mailman/listinfo/ppml and work to get changes to ARIN policies approved. Like any other kind of politics, you lose some and you win some because, in the end, ARIN doesn't do things my way or your way. That's the politics of compromise. > Try looking at it from an outsider's point of view instead.

Sounds like my very first time trying to get an IP network functioning between an SCO Xenix server and a bunch of DOS and Windows 3.0 workstations. Education and experience do work wonders to solve this problem. --Michael Dillon
