This isn't strictly network related, but...

The format of the WHOIS responses changed, which broke a script of mine.

# whois nonexistantdomain.com
No match for "NONEXISTANTDOMAIN.COM".

The verbage change broke my script, only because of sloppy programming on my
part, but.... Since whois'es sometimes close before you get the entire
report, I needed a way to know I got the entire message.

This effect anyone else? Anyone else in favor of a "HEADS-UP" from
networksolutions before these take place? :)
