This episode was fascinating

I was completely riveted. It inspired me to call my ISP and ask to be a guinea pig, I mean early tester, for their ipv6 roll out. They seemed pretty enthusiastic to have a volunteer, and took my contact info. Tech support guy is also part-time sys admin guy, and he liked talking shop more than helping windows users find their WiFi. I got some pretty good info out of him. He mentioned docsis 3.0 as part of the roll out. He also implied that it was coming sooner, rather than later. Apparently, they just bought what they were told is their last allotment of ipv4 addresses, but they have only just begun to considering their ipv6 strategy. Timing is everything.
