Sorry for my non-operational post... I wanted you folks to know that
the new gTLDs that the IAHC outlined in their final draft will be
operational by Feb 7th, 1997.

There was a meeting in New York, NY elier this month where many of
the aproved registrars worked on issues surrounding the CORE database
system. A draft RFP for the development of CORE is available at

I thought you folks would want to start tracking the situation with gTLDs.
You will have to decide on a Registrar to work with. You won't be able to
get deligations in the new gTLDs from the Internic, and the forms and
interactions will be slightly different.
