Also with the level of automation that currently exists, and the good working knowledge that most people have of the systems, we could probably considerably reduced the RIPE's staffing levels and save a great deal of money. In times of belt tightening, even "Not for Profit" organisations like the RIPE must make the same cut backs as those that exist to make a profit. except for the fact that ripe gets paid anyway :P, its not like anyone would consider cancelling their RIPE lirs just because there "would be a financial crisis" or something :P RIPE's income should be pretty stable, although its -growth- may not be in such times, but that does not affect its rendability.
