I registered a new domain this morning; usually, I do a WHOIS to check
for domain name availiblity, then mail in the form to InterNIC, then go
about configuring my DNS for the domain, then mail my secondary to ask
them to add the zone.

Usually, the ack message from NIC takes 4 hrs to 4 days to arrive, and
the reg completes 2 days to 2 weeks later.

This morning, I got an ack *immediately*, and the registration
*completed* in a matter of minutes..!

Amazing what the threat of a little competition does... <EG>
