This raises soooo many issues.  Whois is trivial, thanks to those that
steered me where I need to go.  I went to www.register.com...after
searching around alot of information like "what is a domain?", I found the
link to submit domain changes.  You need a username and password.  Lovely.
I take it that current NSI/InterNIC templates are now useless anywhere
else, along with NIC handles, right?

I guess I can't blame NSI for not wanting to help the competition, but
whois.internic.net is *supposed* to be part of their contract, right?

OTOH, register.com has their heads up their asses for not accepting
NSI/InterNIC templates/NIC handles, etc.  It would do wonders to help
recruit their largest potential customer base (ISPs)...
