    As usual, process goes in to fix a real world problem, and people get too wrapped up in "letter of the law" nonsense to see the bigger "spirit of the law" design.

    Small minded individuals involved in process always destroy process.

    This fills me with glee.

    I've lost count of how many cowboys I know who set up networks in blocks of 10 and memorise IPs the whole way. No CIDR, no DNS.

    IPv6 adoption is going to be tough for those idiots.

    I've been running ipv6 at home for over a decade now (and have my own /48*), have always had to run via a tunnel (6o4) since I've not found an ISP that provides real ipv6 connectivity.



    *seems they're being just as cavalier with wasteful v6 allocations as they were with v4 (you have a /8 and you have a /8 everyone gets a /8), at least when I got mine ages ago, for free no-less.

    AussieBroadBand claims to have full IPv6 support (officially in beta). I've been wanting to sign up for ages to test it out.

    What does the /48 cost you per year?

    I've heard them same, but they're not an option for me. I'm currently on a non-NBN fixed wireless provider, and my NBN option is craptucular FTTN (fail to the nation), that's worse in performance and reliability than I get via wireless. I must be blessed with worse than usual copper infra.

    Nothing actually. checking APNIC now, they want to charge for them.

    Pays to be an early adopter.

    I just love the mindset of "People are not following the change process, we need to address this by making the change process more onerous"

    ok, convince me.

    this'll be good.


    Noting you're in cbr too, it's funny to note there WAS a government ICT mandate in place years ago that all government public services needed to be available on ipv6 by Dec 2012.

    "Anus Sunning" is a poor English translation.

    I believe Taoists refer to the practice as "Sun Gazing with One's Brown Eye."

    So simply put , address space is to big while moores law is slowing, end result is Inet route table scaling issues. So we will move to things like LISP which i see as destroying what makes the internet so great, its diss-aggregation. I have a bunch of other annoyances but they are secondary and mostly history of the "sales" pitch of ipv6.

    Yes i built many of the F5's that many of the organisations bought just to do that function.

    I'm totally ignorant to the high end of this. What kind of CPUs are in routers at the big end of town at the moment?
