Tony if you had half a brain you'd realise that during the Pilot ISPs were
asked if they would like to participate to test the Root Servers, but a
Forwarder would be be in place until 1 January 1998, to ensure integrity of

This, although costly to me, was very sucessful in testing the integrity of
the Root Servers.

I shoud lalso point out the AHNET DNS servers, which provided this service,
DID NOT HOUSE the TLD data during the trial period.  The DNS data fro
alternate domains was on another server altogether behind a firewall.

No, considering the claims were being made by people who WERE NOT USING the

CCA made their claim in March of this year, three months after the
completion of the Root Server testing.

Catch up Tony.  I'm VERY VERY dissapointed in you.

>Feel free to call that person clueless or arrogant. Whichever.
