32 days until Automatic updates of IE7 hit Japan, I believe. Could be a big day, not getting my hope up, however anxiously awaiting. It might actually happen this time
and Yes I believe we are out of time.

So for me too. Even without big traffic. I think IDNs just have to exist - they are much simpler for local users than those ****ing translits:o

There have been IDN enabled browsers in Finland and Germany for at least a year now and 99% of the people still don't know that IDNs exist.

I was talking with a german computer engineer friend of mine today and he didn't know about IDNs - he was amazed when I showed him my german domains. He also told me that a lot of german people don't know that you can type ä into the search box of google and get correct results, so some of them search with "ae". This may be true from what I have seen. You check search stats for a german term from within germany and it's 70% searched with ä and 30% searched with ae.

Thats bad. I think it means that IDNs will blow only when media will talk about them and big corporations will use them with official sites.

There are guys here making an excellent return already via parking and development.

The difference is when IDN's 'blow', even the guys with modest portfolio's will be going along for the ride :p

Excellent for me means at least making renewal fees. My russians do not do this yet...
