I am new to personally dealing with ARIN as of 1.5 years ago. I have had to get 5 seperate allocations in that time. I don't find this to be the case at all. They were very helpful and I was diligent in getting the things together necessary for the allocations and in my responses. It felt to me like teamwork rather than me against them. And, no, I didn't have to offer anyone free trips to Hawaii. ;-) scott
