I am just waiting to see the WHOLE of the .au go into melt down with
a large rush of registrations trying to happened at the same time!

I wonder can it handle the load?

If I apply for a domain now at MelbourneIT I assume I
would be #400 in the Q. As you only accept one
application per domain then there is 100% chance of
you trying to register with auregistry. I suppose my
chances of securing the domain all depend on the speed
of the checkout chick.

How long does it take to get approval from auregistry.
 Also what happens if they switch on at 11:05 are you
running some sort of tickle.

400 x 500 = $200,000 - the stakes are rising.
