I wasn't aware of that.  Does that mean the problems should all be behind
us, assuming the new hardware is stable?  Perhaps ARIN could put up an
"ARIN network status" link on the top menu section of the web site so that
such outages (planned or otherwise) would be more easily/automatically
explained by the web site.

Otherwise, each time there's an outage, first I have to wonder, have I
been blocked?  Has my whole network been blocked (less likely), has this
other network where I have an account also been blocked (not at all
likely)...must be an outage.
