IPv6, Linode & Stats

Yesterday, I talked about some of the work I did in the weekend server overhaul. One of those tasks I wanted to talk about a little more was the addition of native IPv6 because I feel very strongly that IPv6 is important, not just to this blog, but to the future of the internet. I’m very excited that Linode offered native IPv6 in its datacenters as early as May and...

Does your brain hurt yet? I know mine did when I first found this out.  This seems to be the most bass-ackwards thing I’ve ever heard of, but...

Getting underway with IPv6

So let me start off by saying, I’m not new to the world of networking.  I’ve been doing this for a long while now.  I had a Linux box running as a router on a PPPoE DSL line back before you could even buy a home “router” (IE Linksys).  Heck, I had the network running before Pac Bell even had tech support that could handle the concept of more than...
