Exactly. I got a "update has been completed" confirmation letter Wed, 7 Apr
1999 11:31:53 -0400 (EDT), and the changes haven't appeared yet(6pm
Saturday). The person I spoke with yesterday said that they take "up to 48
hours" despite the paragraph in the letter that clearly states:
>All requests completed before 19:00 Eastern time will be included in the

I've since translated the opening paragraph to actually say;
 "The updates, of the domain name shown below, have been completed.
However, it may be many turnings of the sun, or even numerous appearances
of the moon in it's fullness, before we decide to make anyone, including
ourselves, aware of what changes thy modification hath wrought."
 This translation having been derived from the writings of the little known
Roman Emperor Dipshiticus IV.
