[OT/NOOP] Re: tacid.org
1) I hate plants. 2) I hate analogies involving plants even more. 3) You're suggesting abandonment of "perfectly good" IP space, and that he employ stealthy and gray-hat thinking to obtain an easy out. Way to pad ARIN's wallet, btw. When I saw his e-mail, I thought, how proper of him. He's taking ownership of his problem. He wasnt asking for anything specific; infact, it seemed to me more like an offer of help ("hey, firefighter joe on the scene. i think i've pretty much pwned this fire, so, lemme know if you still see crap burning! kthx"). I think he knows the drill on what he needs to do. Don't give him evil thoughts... he'll end up just like the rest of us. :-) -j On Sat, Jul 5, 2008 at 3:21 PM, Frank Bulk - iNAME <frnkblk@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Nick: > > Leaving a domain and IP fallow for such a long time will end up looking > like > my garden did this year when I did the same thing -- overrun with weeds. > > Sending a blanket e-mail to NANOG is not going to get the attention of > those > who manage the e-mail flow (unless you domain belonged to a Fortune 100). > > Just like I should have with my garden, rather than replant among the weed > seeds and spend 99% of my time pulling weeds, I would recommend sowing a > new > field by moving your outbound e-mail server(s) to some fresh address space > (different /24 to be sure, ideally another section of SWIPed space) and > start monitoring your outgoing servers logs.

NEVER let a scientist use the words "unanticipated" and "immediate" in the same sentence. Okay? Okay.
