Call me crazy, but seems odd for all these wierd companies with old registrations
in  all sorts of countries to all be hosted out of one location in NYC,
 by  an AS registered to florida (in 1997).


Also,
Perhaps someone from AS16631 (Cogent) can explain this one:

Why is AS27255:

Had a /16 for 11 years, just recently decided to get an ASN? Seems like
someone just registered a new company to have the same name as a company
that had a /16, and then got a new ASN....

I dunno, call me crazy...
