Work is going to pay for a second dsl line to home. Looks like the network is going to be split again. So, if you can believe this, at my home office (I'm a consultant, remember), I have some twenty machines running. These are split between 3 subnets (each of the RFC1918 nets, and a further six or seven sub-subnets) now, with three different firewalls, and two different paths. Aggregate something like 3mbit down and 2mbit up, with eight static ip's. Yow. Additionally we do all our voice traffic with VOIP, and I don't have a POTS line. Cool stuff.
Anyways, the reason I bring it up is I'm going to be migrating to IP6 at home/office. I figure its a notion that's a long time in the coming. We have all the infrastructure we need here, I just picked up an Extreme Networks switch capable of the GigE we need for the Macs, and enough 100T ports to get everyone up and sending large amounts of traffic. Everything (obsd, darwin, solaris 9, irix, fbsd 5.2) supports it, it's higher performance. It just seems like a win all the way around.
Been reading the IP6 books on Safari. That's actually pretty neat. I do find myself wanting to download the damn book so I can read it while I'm waiting at the doctors office. Matter of fact, I'm tempted to write a WWW::Mechanize script to do just that. I suppose I am not supposed to be doing it, but would it really hurt anyone if I just read my copy offline? In general, if I have a network connection, I'm not reading deadtree stuff. And if I'm offline, I can't read the safari stuff. Maddening.
I am going to kill my cats. I've been thinking of leaving chocolate in the trash so the next time they spread it all over my apartment, it will kill them. Or maybe a fire. Or maybe an accident with a deep frier.
