A hat-tip to vvalkyri for the pointer.u[

I really need to get up to speed on what IPv6 is going to mean to those of us out on the "sharp end of the stick." Infrastructure gurus like RS have been thinking about it for a while...those of us who mostly live in hosts and apps instead of routers and switches are not so with it. I know that our customers have been pushing to purchase hardware and software that support IPv6, with varying degrees of success...but I really haven't seen any sort of plan to go to IPv6 addressing. I always get the feeling that the attitude is "it's great, but let's just let all those other people adopt it first."

I've got to ask the artist: "what's a 'rooter' anyway?" Is that the standard European pronunciation?

Like the Secret Working Group ( http://bert.secret-wg.org/ ), the closing "act" is a standard feature of all RIPE meetings. I think it's intended as bait to get people out of the bar and into the final plenary.

Regarding "rooter", the Brits, Aussies, Kiwis, and some Canuckistanis pronounce it this way. They also use the same pronunciation for a device that is used to put a bevel on the edge of a piece of wood.

The V4 address space exhaustion problem is very real. The dirty little secret is that we ran out of IPv4 address space years and years ago, and it's only loathsome hacks like NAT (which breaks the end to end model in all too many cases) that have kept us going this far.

The IANA free pool is gonna be all used up by the end of 2010q2. By the end of 2011q1 there will be substantial exhaustion in the RIRs. We're already behind the curve to the point where we can't really catch up. For more data, check out http://www.seastrom.com/werefucked.pdf
