Version Six

I enabled IPv6 via 6to4 tunnel a couple of years ago when Fedora Core 2 made it easy to turn on.

It's been humming along.  IP through a tunnel isn't the best thing but that is clearly how we are going to get this done until AT&T and the other US ISPs get off their collective rear ends.

Recently, I've been reading up on what it will take to run single stack (IPv6 only).  It seems like IPv6 + NAT-PT + a DNS proxy services can get you most of the way there.  I'm going to try it out and see where the gaps are.

The cafeteria

I spent the morning in the cafeteria reading a book and working on some ideas.

There was a tornado drill - it was kind of cute to watch the little kids duck and cover in the hallways.

Constitutional Amendments

I think our country might be better off if we squarely faced the limits of the federal government's power, made a sober assessment of the same vis a vis our long term interests, and passed amendments as necessary.

Of course, reality means this is like herding cats.  So it's easier for us to pass another bread and circuses bill.

I'll be spending my check just like everybody else.  I'll be giving it to my wife :-)
