Über Gary Feldmans genial Song zum Thema „wir müssen von IPv4 auf IPv6 wechseln”, habe ich ja schon geblogged. Wer den Text dazu sucht, muss nur eine kleine Whois Abfrage starten:

text: A long long time ago
text: I can still remember
text: when my laptop could connect elsewhere.
text: And I tell you all there was a day
text: the network card I threw away
text: had a purpose - and it worked for you and me.
text: But 18 years completely wasted
text: with each address we've aggregated
text: the tables overflowing
text: the traffic just stopped flowing...
text: And now we're bearing all the scars
text: and all my traceroutes showing stars.
text: The packets would travel faster in cars
text: the day the routers died.
