I was just notified on another list that the Commission has extended the deadline until 10/31...

That’s good, and not unexpected.  Given that their website was pretty much useless and inaccessible yesterday, combined with a small building fire over the weekend that resulted in the office being closed Monday for [sprinkler] water damage cleanup, this makes sense.

Of course, the delay had *nothing* to do with the graph I posted on LinkedIn (and sent a copy directly to the FCC) …. :-)

There were 674 new sites added yesterday alone.  Those don’t show up in the attached graph I created yesterday morning from the previous night’s snapshot.  

The tally stands at 13,039 total (8,622 since the freeze) as of last night’s database snapshot.

It’s going to take the FCC folks “months" to process and resolve the stack of registrations (that’s a quote).

So, go tell your clients they really ought to get those registrations in quickly.  I wouldn’t count on another extension (after 180 days already plus another two weeks).
