OK, new to ruby, and i know this can be done, i'm looking for tips on how to create a backordering system for domains to the DAC (Domain availability checker) of nominet. I understand i would need to create a database where i would have to input the domains into. I understand that i would need to timing method so it would start to release all these requests from X to X as nominet has a limit to the amount of requests you can carry out. I understand that i would need to make multiple whois checks on a particular domain, and as soon as its status would say 'available' the ruby system would rush over and register the domain at nominet. For this also i would of had to input the details into the database where ruby can then use these details such as address, name, phone etc for the contact details when reging the domains. Is there anything i have missed? could someone point me in the right direction. I know this game is all about speed and skills to aquire the best domains, but i'm looking for something i could build which would work which will be great! regardles of the speed. I can build on the speed of the system when i get more familiar with ruby.
