Re: more netsol fun (fwd)

So who's bright idea was it to break the important operational WHOIS
service!?!?!? Did anyone even think of asking the people who operate the
various Internet networks whether this was a good idea?

There is a new procedure for your whois lookups.  First do a:
whois -hwhois.crsnic.net $domain
that will tell you what whois server to use for lookups (such as
whois.register.com or rs.internic.net ...)
then use that whois server for your lookup.

domainwatch.com has been modified a bit to do the above.
