While that is true, ARIN is the "AMERICAN Registry of Internet Numbers",
and should therefore attempt to minimize the inconvenience of the vast
majority of it's members.  (Yes, I understand ARIN is responsible for
South America and Africa, probably also Antarctica; the vast majority of
ARIN members are within 4 time zones.)
I would love to be able to do major maintenence during the day, my paying
customers would be justifiably furious.  As a member (paying customer) or
ARIN, this is unacceptable, and I hope someone operationally at ARIN gets
half a clue.
