Thanks. It was corrected on all machines by NSI at about 1:00pm EST on
Dec 1st.
We then created 2.2.3 with all the final code. We fixed an obscure JP
handle, and ARIN handle bug today, and the final source tarball is up as
2.2.4. If you downloaded and use your own copy of the proxy, please
download the latest version. Users of the proxy will
automatically use the latest proxy, of course.

One quick note for spam fighters - querying geektools for any domain,
followed by the word "abuse" will return the latest know abuse contacts
from John Levine's database.

As in:

$ whois " abuse"
$ whois -h " abuse"

Initial server used for this query:
abuse at
