There are no more 2-character .io domains

I posted in October the last remaining 131 2-character .io domains. I checked them again last night and they are now all gone.

Mario Ellebrecht registered g2.io on July 15th, which was the last available 2-character .io domain:

What was the first? go.io was registered by Disney way back on Feb 3rd, 1999, which I think was the 2nd .io domain ever registered (the first was yahoo.io):

Domain Handle :	DOM-71660

When will the last of the 3-character .io domains be registered? There are still a lot left, but if the huge recent spike in interest in .io domains continues, it won’t be as long as we think.
