2-in-5 Tool even better

Man, whoever made the 2-in-5 Tool should handle all new applications for USAC. It just feels more polished and better designed than anything else on the USAC site. But what has USAC got against the Back button? At least the cookie-crumb navbar at the top makes it less painful not to be able to use the browser's Back button.

Too bad this tool supports a rule that should be abolished.

We'll have to wait a while to see it go. My bet is that it will be June 2008. I figure the first 2-in-5 rule denials will take place in, say, November. So around December, the FCC will start getting appeals from confused applicants who never heard of the 2-in-5 rule, or didn't really realize how it applied to their application, and find out too late they're screwed. By March, enough appeals will have piled up that the FCC will take notice. By June, they'll realize it's an unjust rule that confuses people and disadvantages small applicants, and more importantly, will increase their own workload processing appeals, and will abolish the rule.

And then I wake up.
