Perhaps a function of how lookups are being done?  *shrug*

:~> whois
Unknown AS number or IP network. Please upgrade this program.

Is this a function of whois hardcoded to no do lookups for this address
space?  I can't seem to find any info about the range, beyond
"registered but unallocated".   I figured whois would at least return
something about it not being allocated.

Is this hijacked space?
