Completewhois email server is down right now and needs to be rebuilt.
That's not to say that is a good excuse - I should have updated bogon 
list 3 months ago when allocation was made, but I missed it among
many emails on this list and other lists; its fixed as of right now,
so my apologies to those who received new allocations from 77/8
(apparently RIPE started allocating two weeks ago; a bit sooner
after IANA allocation then before, but I guess they are out of
available space on other blocks...). I also added daily emailing of 
active_bogons list to this and one other of my actively used email 
accounts which would make it easier to catch similar problems.
