TAKING ITS TIME: The organization in charge of expanding the number of Internet address suffixes says it's favoring "quality, not speed" in bringing back a system after a software glitch.
WHAT HAPPENED: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers abruptly shut down a system for letting companies and organizations propose new suffixes, after it discovered a software glitch that exposed some private data.
WHY THE DELAY: ICANN has said it needed time to figure out why the software failed and how to fix it. ICANN still must undergo testing and inform those affected. It gave no timetable.
