We got a new volunteer, Terry Baranski to help out with the load.

We just got Lucent to correct their announcements.  They had been announcing:
Network            Origin AS  Description         10455     Lucent Technologies
and with the help of Internap they have now fixed their announcement to 
comply  with what appears in ARIN.

If anyone can help out here - it would be appreciated.  We have been 
sending emails to anyone and everyone in AS568 since January - all of them 
generating not a single reply.

So if the US Military can hijack a few IPs, we will have a hard time 
convincing spammers and their shills to stop hijacking other available 
address space:

Network            Origin AS  Description           568     DISO-UNRRA           568     DISO-UNRRA           568     DISO-UNRRA       568     DISO-UNRRA         568     DISO-UNRRA

Obviously, there are some since we do see these announcements pop up here 
and there.
