ASK SLASHDOT What happened to the resolution of laptops
1920x1080 are dime-a-dozen, 1920x1200 are harder to find.
On the old IBM t60 you could even upgrade to qxga (2048x1536)
mmmmmm, i would like a modern laptop with wqxga :-)
Why You Shouldn't Worry About IPv6 Just Yet
Exactly, once you HAVE ipv6, it just works.
The thing that blows my mind is how so many people are just putting their head in the sand, and claiming this doesn't apply to them.
While I DO agree, that for most endusers, this will not be a problem for some time, do we really want to postpone the problem until someone comes along and says "oh, btw, next week we wont have any more IPV4 addresses, just so you know"
I Live in Sweden, and have been trying to find isps that hand out IPV6 addresses and even in Sweden, that supposedly is somewhat ahead of the bellcurve, it IS difficult to find IPS that offer residential customers IPV6 addresspace. Where I work i manage the peering with our upstream ISP's and we have IPV6 BGP peering with all of them and have quite a significant amount of IPV6 addresses assigned to us (I dont expect we will run out anytime before the year 2100 or so, but i guess thats being conservative, after all, its not too long ago that Bill Gates predicted that 640k ought to be enough for anyone)
All in all, what do we have to loose in being prepared? I would rather be prepared and have all of my firewall and other issues figured out NOW instead of being forced to do so in a rush and just "throw it together", The excuse that no residential routers handle it falls pretty quickly. Wrt54g, everyones(?) favo(u)rite router has in some form or another had IPV6 support since at least 2006, probably earlier but that was just the first results google turned up....
So can we at least to agree to disagree, while I DO know that the last IPV4 /8's are being handed out most probably in 2011 (Unless a miracle happens), those who get it will have addresses for quite a while, but we SHOULD all of us call our isp once a week or so and open a ticket on the lack of RA on our link....
Sooner or later (hopefully sooner, I feel bad for you poor guys in helpdesk) the ISPs will see a demand for IPV6 and deploy it.
