FW: 72/8 friendly reminder

  • From: Member Services
  • Date: Thu Mar 24 16:21:13 2005

ARIN supports the idea of doing reachability testing on new /8 blocks issued
by the IANA and will begin to set a plan in motion to move forward on this.
Once more details have been worked out, we will notify the community.

put up a pingable for that space and announce it on the lists so we can all
test BEFORE someone uses space from that block.
