The site looks good.

While we're on the topic of communication, does anyone know of a resource
where I can contact Sales contacts at ISPs? (I realize that this list is
mostly technical). I ask because I have written an RFP for a company
looking for mailbox hosting, DNS, domain hosting, etc. (No DIALUPS!)
However, to get a good collection of responses, I'm afraid that I'll have
to spend hours at collecting
addresses for solicitations. Physical location of the ISP is not an issue,
so I can release it nationally.
