"All in good time my pretty..."
We are working on the 192.x.x.x swamp right now.
Rough estimates (with much more accurate data @ NANOG)
60% - invalid or missing contact information
25% - in use & unwilling to renumber
15% - willing to renumber or return
This is from ~6,000 delegated entries. If all goes well,
we can find some new area to work on sometime in later this
Have any suggestions? 198.x.x.x? The old /16 space?
