Something is still not right here….

Today was supposed to be the closing date for new gTLD domain applications via ICANN’s TAS system.  After weeks of sleepless nights pulling together the most obscure forms and data and with just twelve hours until the window shut, ICANN announced that because of technical issues the TAS would be closed.  Their message simply said:-

“ICANN constantly monitors the performance of the TLD Application System (TAS). Recently, we received a report of unusual behavior with the operation of the TAS system. We then identified a technical issue with the TAS system software. 

ICANN is taking the most conservative approach possible to protect all applicants and allow adequate time to resolve the issue. Therefore, TAS will be shut down until Tuesday at 23:59 UTC – unless otherwise notified before that time.  

In order to ensure all applicants have sufficient time to complete their applications during the disruption, the application window will remain open until 23:59 UTC on Friday, 20 April 2012.

 We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. If you have any questions, please contact the gTLD Customer Service Center (CSC) via the CSC portal.”

However, it would be have been logical if they updated their website you would think?  Obviously not as the above images shows at 7.30pm.
