      APNIC Whois Database Upgrade - 20 August 2002
      _____________________________________________
      
      Dear Colleague,
      
      This is a reminder that the APNIC Whois Database will be upgraded to
      RIPE v3 database software on Tuesday 20 August 2002. All records in the
      APNIC Whois Database will be migrated to the new version at this time.
      
      During the period from 9:00 am to 10.00 am (UTC +10 hours) on 20 August
      2002 updates to the database will NOT be possible. Any updates submitted
      during this time will not be accepted and will need to be resubmitted
      once the upgrade has been completed.
      
      Queries to the APNIC Whois Database will continue to operate normally
      during the upgrade.
      
      APNIC apologises for any inconvenience.
