    IPv6 scares the bejesus out of me.

    I don't know a whole lot about it yet, but it looks like a completely different animal. It'll be a whole new world - all the routing protocols I know and love are being revised for this. IS-IS is the only protocol right now that supports it.

    128 bit long address..written as 8 16-bit pieces. Tell me this doesn't look intimidating...

    FEDC:BA98:7654:3210:FEDC:BA98:7654:3210

    And then there's the prefix-length...

    Ugh.

    "See if you can ping me."

    "What the address?"

    "Uhmmmm."

    microtechnology - although it's wayyyy far off...the idea of making something like a pen, or a stuffed animal out of microparticles is nuts.

    if our networks change over to V6, its going to make our job a whole lot harder.

    No you can't. There's a very strict hierarchy in IPv6 addressing.

    Good. TCP/IP sucks anyway.

    Maybe they'll start storing IPv6 addresses on USB keys, so if you want to move or copy them you can just plug them into the computer and read them electronically instead of having to rattle off a long-ass string of hex values.
