The point I was trying to make was that if you HAVE to take something down
at ARIN, daylight hours for the americas is probably NOT the best time to
do it:

Now, I fully agree that the BEST solution to the problem is for it to be
available 24x7, as there are those of us which work from midnight-4 on a

noon-4a, depending on what needs to get done.)
