lindajames, you probably know this:
.state.?.us STATE -State Government Agencies
.cc.?.us community colleges
.tec.?.us and technical/vocational schools
.lib.?.us LIB - Libraries (State, Regional, City, County)
.gen.?.us GEN - General Independent Entities
.cog.?.us COG - Councils of Government
.mus.?.us MUS - Museums
.dts.?.us DST - Districts (DST replaces District)
.isa.?.us ISA - Interstate Authority
.nsn.?.us NSN - Native Sovereign Nations

sticky if I can be any help

thanks marcs, for the 'whois.nic.us, I have been
using 'whois.isi.edu' in my script for some reason?
but now changed :)

Just use <suffix>.whois-servers.net for all domains - it's a CNAME for the real whois server. It even works for .uk.com, .ac.uk, and other nonstandard TLDs.
