One thing that bothers me about the current environment is the continued
reference to various people as "clueless".  Yet, I read (if memory serves
correctly) that NSI/InterNIC has billed only 50% of the domains and has cut
off fully paid domains (no need to read about this part, it happened to us
`[:((.

It is hard for me to imagine even a die hard old timer supporting a firm
with such a record.  

Thus my suggestion that NAIR might want to use a Big 6 Accounting Firm or a
firm like EDS to do the back office functions.
