Default Arabic domains go live

I can tell it's the "purdah" day here in the UK: one of the top 3 news stories on the BBC web site is that Arabic TLDs are now available.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/10100108.stm

(Purdah - on the general election day, UK broadcasters are not allowed to carry any party political material - which comes as a blessed relief to some of us, I have to say. The trouble is, come midnight, the airwaves will burst out into a frenzy of hype and speculation in advance of all the results being available, and when they are, a torrent of analysis of the, mostly, blindingly obvious.

The closest to a political story is that the head of the UKIP party has been in a plane crash. It is alleged the accident may have been caused by an entanglement with an election banner being towed by the plane. May I be permitted a discreet smirk, given that no-one was killed?)
