This was almost the biggest laugh I had this year... Thanks for that.
(The biggest was "IPv6 will not catch on for the simple reason that it
sucks.", see http://www.kuro5hin.org/comments/2002/8/26/22240/1363/149)
As long as I'm wasting bandwidth: does anyone know of some way to
automatically tunnel IPv4 over IPv6? It seems to me that tunneling v4
over v6 is much more powerful than the other way around, as it could
allow extremely dense use of IPv4 addresses which would be useful during
the transition period.
PS. Surfing the web with v6 is cool. Shame it's so hard to get a
v6-enabled browser on your Mac. Installing Apache 2 on it is easier...
