This announcement is being sent to multiple lists. I apologise for
The RIPE NCC received the IPv4 address range 188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206
(85/8, 86/7 and 88/8) from the IANA in April 2004.
We began making allocation from 85/8 in August 2004 and from 86/8 in
March, this year. We expect to start making allocations from 87/8 in
the next few weeks.
We have been announcing two prefixes from 87/8: 220.127.116.11/16 and
18.104.22.168/21, which originated in AS12654. These announcements have
now been withdrawn as we will start to allocate from this /8. We are
currently announcing two prefixes from 88/8, from which we will
allocate in a few months. Those announcements are: 22.214.171.124/16 and
126.96.36.199/21, originating in AS12654.
Details of the BGP announcements, reachability tools and other
information are available on our web site at:

This is to notify you that some object(s) in NZRR database
which you either maintain or are listed as to-be-notified have
been added, deleted or changed.
These objects are used to configure the various NZIX route
servers (http://nzix.net/) so you can expect the relevant
servers to be reloaded in the near future. The reloading
of the servers is staggered over a period of time so that
if you are peering with both servers at an exchange, you
can maintain at least one BGP session at all times and
consequently a full set of routes.

It appears that R2.co.nz will be webcasting the Public Meeting to discuss
the proposal that Wellington Host a leg of the V8 Supercar Championships.
The meeting is tomorrow night 19 April at 7pm
The webcast server will be located on WIX and network operators may
experience a frenzy of petrolheads wanting to watch their team win. Or
hassling their Help Desks that nothing works. Operators not currently
peering at WIX should contact CityLink if they would like assistance with
WARNING - we have included a 2Mbps stream for broadcast use. Broadcast
operators should contact me if they have any special requirements.
Thank you for your co-operation.
I'm just wondering if there are any ISPs out there still on the
Jetstream Partnering Program who haven't signed the WSA or made other
arrangements for their Jetstream customers yet?
Offlist replies are fine :)
