As part of wanting to be part of a brighter and sunny future, we've decided to disconnect IPv4 on our backend, and go single-stack IPv6. Right now, reading to this post, you're connected to our database through shiny 128-bit IP addressing that is working hard to process your posts. For those of you still in the past, we'll continue to publish A records which will allow a fleeting glimpse of a future without NAT.

Believe it or not, we're actually serious on this one.

We're not publishing AAAA records on production just yet as Slash has a few minor glitches when it gets an IPv6 address (they don't turn into IPIDs correctly), though we are publishing an AAAA record on dev. With one exception, all of our services communicate with each other on IPv6.

Perhaps I will write an article about our backend and the magical things that happen there :-).
