What an Internet Provider should be.

TBR Update;

February 13th, 2006.

As many folks already know, CIRA announced January 24th that they were stopping TBR registrations until further notice. Today (Feb 13th) they announce plans to resume TBR registrations starting March 15.

I am guessing that CIRA will not release all the accumulated domain on March 15th. I expect and hope that they will release them over a few different weeks (since apparently TBR runs will be weekly now).

Rumor has it that CIRA suspended TBR registrations because one registrar (or group of registrars) had found a way to manipulate the TBR system and increase their chances of being "first in the door". A quick analysis of the first five domains registered each day between January 5th and 24th seems to validate this :(.
