No. Bill only said that he had agreements to fund support of the
existing numbers from enough people at AADS that he would not turn off 
name service on 1/15. The message from Kevin Peterson at AADS came
out significantly after this transpired and the NANOG BOF on AADS
renumbering is still very much on the agenda.

I imagine that the renumbering to some Ameritech owned address space
will take place within the next month. and that it will continue to
be a single prefix and not a mass of /30s. The message from Kevin

it is now, so it would simply be a matter of adding a single secondary 
address to each router interface and a new set of addresses to the ATM 
address map. (This assumes Cisco routers. I have no experience with

Until I hear otherwise from AADS, I assume the renumbering is on. We
should all know more about a week from tonight after the BOF in

It does seem odd that several organizations that should have heard
about this direct from AADS seem unaware. Maybe it just has not
