Interesting take there, Michele!

Of course, the TAS should have been robust enough to take care of such
programming issues. While I'm not personally complaining about the extension
(and I'm sure some of the new gTLD applicants are currently the happiest
people on earth right now), I think it's unfortunate the 29 March deadline
for opening TAS accounts didn't enjoy a week's extension!

TAS Temporarily Offline
12 April 2012
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

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
