Thanks for the advice, and for the feedback. It definitely helps to get more
than one point of view (my own!) on this stuff.

I did get a little confused by the switching you did, though. Do I understand
correctly that you switched from your old Class C to your new Class C, and then
back to your old Class C again? Maybe you're using BGP-4 routing and that's
what's confusing me.

Anyways, thanks for your above reply, which is appreciated.
