ICANN Extends New Domain Deadline Because of Bug 41

judgecorp writes "ICANN has extended the deadline for applications for new generic top level domains until Friday 20th April. ICANN says it observed 'unusual behavior' in the system, which has now been fixed, but has extended the deadline to make sure everyone (with $185,000) gets a chance. From the article: 'ICANN’s technical staff have been working on a fix to a problem with the TLD Application System (TAS) but it was now working again, an ICANN spokesman in Europe told TechWeekEurope. “I don’t yet have all the details, but here is what I do know,” Brad White, ICANN’s director of media affairs told TechWeekEurope. “There was not a cyber-attack of any type.”'"

    Remember when you had to type in a domain name to acess stupid shit that is now intelligently sorted in superwikibookfacer? I heard daft corporations pissed 185k away just to catalyze a transition away from random horribly programmed websites to a secure cohesive flourishing knowledge and resource mapping infrastructure of community maintained distributed networks?

    Internet security can be tough, and you can't expect them to have experts available.
