Dear Dan;

You should see if you can find out what it costs the IEEE 802

It will be interesting to see if ICANN has as much trouble,

I know. I am attending both the IEEE 802 Plenary meetings and the IETF
meetings for many years. I can witness first hand that the situation is

As I will be attending the IEEE 802 meeting next week (in Vancouver, but
at a different hotel) I will be able to report by the end of the week
how it was. Anyway, it hardly can be worse than at the IETF meeting.
During this whole IETF week I could almost never connect during the
