    Stay up on Friday night then :p:

    It's a bit of a lousy time for us. They have blocked new users (registering after May 30) so that will prevent people hogging all the good ones.

    Also, you cannot change/transfer it. I have 9 other people with my name. I want it.

    Also, 'home.php' is probably off limits.

    Thankfully, it appears I am the only person on fb with my name, so I won't be getting up early/staying up stupidly late.

    I'll be in a field in Derby so I won't get the one I want. Oh well. Seems a bit 'myspace' again though.

    They couldn't have chosen a worse time. I'm going out Friday night and won't be home until around 7am so I'll either have to pick whatever is left by then or try to do it on my phone. Browsing the net on my phone is a bit crap.
    I can't decide whether to get my real name or something Sephiroth related. Chances are my real name will be taken if I can't do this on my phone.

    People all over the world use facebook. Even if we get on there at 12 oclock midnight other people in other countries might have it earlier??

    firstname.surname
    I was wondering the same. I'd sort of thought I may as well try to start with to grab just firstname, but that might lead to tonnes of random people getting directed to my facebook page....

    On another note, they must be expecting bandwidth overload at that time... As mentioned, it's 5am here, but in America it's from 10pm - 1am...
