[vox-tech] whois redux



there are a number of alternate whois clients besides GNU's whois.

debian packages gwhois and jwhois, both of which are better than GNU whois.

there's also a "bw whois" which, imho, is the best of all.  unfortunately,
they call their client "whois" too.   :(   since /usr/local/bin is way down
in $PATH, i uninstalled GNU whois.  no love lost.  i would never want to use
GNU's whois when i have bw's whois...  highly recommended.   it still
required that i look up "kauhava.fi" as "kauhava".   wierd.
