Well, recently, whois.internic.net started producing output
[kenn at atlas kenn]$ whois bluetreesystems.com
Domain Name: BLUETREESYSTEMS.COM
Registrar: CORE INTERNET COUNCIL OF REGISTRARS
Whois Server: whois.corenic.net
Referral URL: www.corenic.net
Then you're supposed to do:
[kenn at atlas kenn]$ whois bluetreesystems.com at whois.corenic.net
Blue Tree Hostmaster (template COCO-184020)
Blue Tree Systems Ltd
Mervue Business Park
Galway, Co. Galway . IE
I'm pretty sure there's a command line whois that will chase
this referral automatically. I'll find it yet...
