The End Of Guessing

It has been a continual surprise to me that, with so many things to do, people who work in IPv6 advocacy have spent so much time arguing about the accuracy of IPv4 depletion predictions, and asking why competing estimates didn’t match. Since two weeks ago, or so, the guessing stopped, and yesterday, a ceremony/press conference […] Continue reading

I looked into how to get the kernel source, and [...] Continue reading
