Happy New Year, NANOGers!  

I hope you all had a good [operationally quiet] end to 2008, and 
look forward to 2009 along with this January's meeting in the 
Dominican Republic.  Registered NANOG45 attendees will get further 
updates sent to the <nanog-attendee at nanog.org>, so please do 
subscribe to it if you had opted out at the time of registration,
either by mailing <Nanog-attendee-request at nanog.org> or dropping
http://mailman.nanog.org/mailman/listinfo/nanog-attendee into
your web browser.

We have been working through our generous host Terremark with the 
Dominican Republic's government to make entry a smooth process. 
The NANOG Program Committee has once again provided an excellent 
agenda (http://nanog.org/meetings/nanog45/agenda.php) for the 
conference.  Our sponsors (http://nanog.org/meetings/nanog45/sponsors.php)
have also received assistance with customs issues, and are ready 
to meet and talk with you, our clued attendees.  Should you need 
a formal Letter of Invitation, please contact Merit staff 
at <nanog-support at nanog.org>.  Information regarding entrance and 
exit requirements (with links to official DR sites) are available 
on the meeting website (see http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog45/entry.php).

For those still sorting out their travel, be aware that the 
registration fee will increase on January 16 (see
https://nanog.merit.edu/registration/).  Flight costs are about 
the same as domestic travel within the US, and the hotel rates 
are less than many of our other locations, but the NANOG group 
rate ends January 9 (see http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog45/hotel.php),
so if you haven't booked yet, time is of the essence. 

Merit staff and members of the Steering, Program and Mailing List 
Committees are all working hard to support the NANOG community. 
As always, we encourage you to send any questions or concerns via 
email, or by voice at Merit 1.734.527.5700. 

Looking forward to seeing you there!
