Near-real-time Whois for com/net is not available today but is coming:
it will be in place by April 1, 2006, per the new .net registry
agreement
(http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/net/net-registry-agreement-01jul05.pdf,
FWIW).

Our registry customer service group reads mail sent to
<info@verisign-grs.com> 24 hours per day, so if it's a real emergency
you can always contact them or activate the bat signal with a posting
on NANOG, which is also read here throughout the day.
