Dammit, can we not think about those minds that were trained for years, nay decades to think in 4 octets and just numbers. The horror, the heart wrenching terror I felt when I first witnessed an IPv6 number. It struck to the core. Letters and numbers, mixed together, 6 sets, not four.
...damn you...damn you all to hell.
You can go IPv6 when you rip this IPv4 number, 192.168.1.78, from my cold lifeless fingers. Now I am suppose to be 1fe.67a.e45.dd1.176, NEVER! As if I can remember that mess. I'm here to tell you, once we go IPv6, it will be the day computers take over the world for only they will truly *know* each other. Now where's my damn lawn again?

That was just cruel. Delishly, baconly cruel. Well played, and now time to learn once again (reaches for TCP/IP Networking for Dummy, version 6)
Actually, this might be a good topic for us to go in-depth about
Oops, didn't mean to submit. I meant to write, go in-depth in an original post, vs. us just agitating news ...
Ncommander, please write a blog post on how you went about implementing the IPv6 features for SN so that other folks could be inspired to implement it for their own websites/LANs.
