A Swiss VM hosting provider has a technical blog post about how to kill IPv4 completely on FreeBSD. That is to say, turning it completely off, not just preferring IPv6. They then solicit concrete solutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how to turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.

    Some of us are smart enough to ignore societal conventions and use velcro shoes because they save us time.

    undoing the velcro then putting it back takes less time than doing nothing? lemme axe you: do you think you're smart enough for shoelaces, or do other people think that also (if you know other people)?
