It doesn't change the fact that the RIPE database doesn't reflect reality. Adding ONE "ASSIGNED record, covering the entire range of addresses, stating in text that these addresses are used for bla bla bla, and that you can contact bla bla bla for actual information would make the RIPE database consistent and remove uk.demon from the list I pressume. I am sure that RIPE would ask Demon to maintain one record in the database per IP#, but I'm also sure that RIPE would not be against adding one record for the range. At least that is what they asked dk.cybercity to do for similar usage. -- Poul-Henning Kamp FreeBSD coreteam member phk at FreeBSD.ORG "Real hackers run -current on their laptop."
