Sure, no problem.

Yes, that's correct.

Yes. That's because we added a field to store the requested account name
to the database in september. We added this data for all applicants that
were already approved by their AM.

No, most of them wait a lot longer than 3 months (up to 8 months...)

I fear I have to surprise you, but this is not a new idea. The long DAM
queue is and was a problem for some time now. To solve this, Joerg
Jaspert was appointed as new DAM a year ago and he started to work on
the backlog. The queue was shortened a lot since then (now ~25
applicants are waiting for DAMnation, down from >60). He will probably
get it empty in the next 6 weeks, at least I hope so.

we just switched to FDDI.
