Cdn Do-Not-Call List System Crashes

Thousands of people rushed to register their numbers on the Do-Not-Call List caused the website servers to crash.  The CRTC has since announced that they are increasing capacity/bandwidth to their website.

The CRTC has also said that by 1:30pm on Tuesday, 223,000 people has registered for the service.  More than one million people tried to access their telephone hotline to register. Their site and hotline were activated at 12:01am on Tuesday.

Though the service was launched Tuesday, it won't take effect until 31 days after a person has registered.

The Do Not Call service made a world of difference in the lives of many U.S. folk. 

I still get a lot of "we can get you to the top of the search engines" calls, but they are during the day.  I'm not bothered in the evenings.

Too bad the system was down! This is a great service and has done a lot of people a lot of good. No more getting up from the dinner table to answer telemarketing calls (or at least, you'll answer less calls...)
