ipv6

I bet you can't see the turtle dance. I actually managed to set up my network to access the currently nearly useless IPv6 address space.

The most useful thing I was able to do was to ssh from a computer outside of my router/firewall to inside my network without having to log into the router first.

It occured to me one reason ISPs aren't really pushing for IPv6 is the large ISPs at this point are tend to be telephone and cable TV companies and they don't really want average users to be able to contribute content.

If we were actually rolling IPv6 out it would be possible for everyone to have static IP addresses again, and therefore average people could host services off of the computers. (well in theory at least, it still can be a pain to actually host services).
