British Ban Spikes Pirate Bay Traffic
Virgin Media has blocked just the IP address currently exposed via DNS for thepiratebay.se, far as I can tell. (I haven't tested exhaustively.) https://plus.google.com/109104274582476853846/posts/4ZDXRpUt99J
TBP advertise a whole bunch more addresses via BGP, which I'm sure they could start using pretty quickly, if they wanted: http://bgp.he.net/AS51040#_prefixes
World IPv6 Day: Most-watched Tech Event Since Y2K
Vint Cerf Says No To IPv7, Yes To InterPlanetary Web
Actually, IPv9 is called TUBA. No, really. And IPv7 is TP/IX. During the IP next generation discussions, Jon Postel allocated each a number. Vint surely knows this.
Protect Your Pre-1997 IP Address
Every time this discussion comes up, people fail to see the significance of IPv4 running out. It's 2010, and folks still get confused.
The significance is this: There are massive growth regions in the world that will only be able to purchase IPv6 addresses within the next year or two. And if you aren't playing the IPv6 game, then you're shutting you and your customers off from all those various markets that will open up in years to come.
There's only so much can be squeezed out of IPv4. But regardless of how much can be squeezed out of the existing space, the regional registries are likely to run out of /24's they can allocate within a year. See for a guesstimate: http://www.potaroo.net/tools/ipv4/index.html That is, in 2012, much expansion in growth regions WILL be IPv6 only.
You're shooting yourself in the foot if you refuse to bring yourself up to date.

Which Distro For an Eee PC?
Good call on the NC10. For Ubuntu information, here's the page with installation help you want: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NC10
My NC10 is running standard Ubuntu, and gets 5 hours battery life on standard usage. (7 to 8 hours when it's idling.)
Building the Interplanetary Internet
IPN is closely related to Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN), which has more potential applications than just interplanetary networking. There's a whole bunch of uses for this stuff that can include real-life sensor networks, healthcare scenarios, emergency situations, and periodic shipping of data to isolated communities. Many situations where you either don't have a network connection, or you can't guarantee a network connection, can make use of some of this stuff.
