Hooray! For Today is IPv6 Launch Day!

As everyone knows, today is IPv6 Launch Day, where we (the internet) are supposed to turn on (and leave on) IPv6. It saddens me that I am unable to participate in this launch day by turning on IPv6… because We’ve been natively v6 accessible since June 2011.

As it turns out, there isn’t...

Two new sites: Where’s Gibson & IPv6 Wiki

So the Snowulf Network of websites has grown by two over the last week.  Normally, I try not to add too many sites to my belt as it tends to make for a lot of administration.  In these particular cases I have to make an exception.  Let me explain briefly why I brought these two new sites about.
