And another two are off

Two more IPv4 address blocks have been allocated. Both went to the Asia-Pacific region, as did the two blocks that were allocated in April.

Only 10.9% of the IPv4 address space remains unallocated:

If you exclude the blocks reserved by the "n=1" proposal, only 8.9% of the IPv4 pool is left.

Folks, it's way past time for IPv6 trials. It's time to get serious. How much more grim do the data have to get before we start taking action?

Because this service uses a Cisco loadbalancer that doesn't yet support IPv6.

Derek, I agree on your politics. Consider that I reached your blog searching for osx ipv6 tools (can't live without ip/ifconfig) as I'm trieing to push ipv6 addresses in an openvpn bridge (tap) interface... but let me tell you: reading your blog stresses me. It's like having a clock in my head counting down to the end of my world: tick, tack, tick, tack...

We'll do it, we'll do it. I'm sure we'll succeed. We're just risky lazy bones waiting the last minute to enjoy more the hurry... live long and prosper.

You'd think the requirements for obtaining a dedicated IP would be difficult to meet. It's just a simple form to file, tell them its for SSL reasons and you're approved. Hosting companies however over the last year have seem to tighten the belt somewhat on granting requests.
