uh, the administrivia is on the web site.  i will not mock you by
sending a url.  same for the pricing.  i guess i must not understand
your question.

it's just business.  do the paperwork, send the cash; arin even takes
credit cards; i have not tried green stamps.  as to the administrative
hassle, anyone who asks clearly has never dealt with ripe's eurocrazy.
you just don't realize how easy it is to work with arin hostfolk.

i did not read it beyond scanning; it seemed uninteresting, more policy
noise.  i am only on this thread because heather asked two questions for
which i was foolish enough to believe that i had the direct experience
to answer.
