World IPv6 Day

... and it's here! Today, June 8, 2011 (as of about half an hour ago GMT), is World IPv6 Day, sponsored by the Internet Society. Many major corporations are offering their content (or some of it) over IPv6 for the next 24 hours. Head over to the main event page and get yourself on IPv6 and check out some sites over it! My personal favorite test page for IPv6 connectivity is actually http://ipv6-test.com/, not the ISOC-recommended http://test-ipv6.com/. The former also has a ping and website test that will verify that a web server is running at the v6 address that a domain resolves to. You can check my websites - they're up on IPv6 now!

Sadly my home connection is no longer tunnellable to IPv6. DSL Extreme needs to get their act together and offer such a simple service. I wonder why it is that I can't even tunnel out over IPv4...
