Thursday, 6 August 2009 for sale

ZimEye reports that the domain name is available for sale. Some lively comments have been added by way of discussion as to whether only governments can acquire 'country name + tld' domains. Anyway, if you're in the market for this particular item, now's the time to get bidding.

The author of this article, Robert Ndhlovu, concludes his piece by writing:
"Considering that South Africa would be hosting the first soccer world cup in Africa , it takes no rocket science to figure out the internet spill over traffic that this 30 day , once in 4 years event will bring to that region".
Without wanting to sound in any way surprised by this statement, Afro Leo wonders how much internet spillover traffic was experienced in 2006 by the nine countries which border the host nation in that year, Germany.

To follow up Afro-Leo's inquiry: and unlike with the surrounding countries from the Germany World Cup, how many fans are going to plan a holiday in Zimbabwe after the games?
(Much better opportunities in Botswana, Zambia and other area countries.)
