Looks like the registry is corrupt; My contact information is corrupt
now as well, as is my girlfriend's; we've both gotten assigned to
Lobo Net, rather than our proper locations.  I looked up JM2789, but
it's garbled in a different manner.  I wonder if everyone associated
with a particular domain is garbled in the same way?

Anyhow, this really bites.  If the InterNIC wants to charge for
services, they really MUST take better care of the data.
