I'm saying using BSG as an appeal might be misguided, seeing as most
of the first 2 seasons included resistance to any form of networking.
I'm saying comparing (NCP-to-TCP) to (ipv4-to-ipv6) is several orders
of magnitude off in terms of complexity of adoption, devices to touch,
skill level of implementors, and business-criticalness of conversion.

I'm a doubter on the "needed" part, since the sky has been falling for
too long to take it seriously. I'm more firmly in the "won't reach
Network Effect/critical mass anytime soon (~10+ years)" camp. There's
just no business case for early conversion. I tried converting my
home-lab to v6 last year, and some was trivial (sshd, apache, slapd,
bind), but plenty enough other apps weren't anywhere near ready.
Although, I will say that one of my big showstoppers (MySQL not
supporting v6) finally got checked in 2 weeks ago, so, after that
rolls down to sid I might give it another shot.

It's youtube. A google subsidiary. You know, those guys that rolled
out gmail and kept a beta tag on it for roughly 83 years?
I'm a little surprised that we're just sitting around til 6/6 so a
press release can line up all cutesy-wootsie with the calendar. Slap
a beta tag up and go, before the Imminent Death of the Internet
Anyone up for an April 4th party in celebration of the First Ever "My
Network is Fine, Thanks" Day? If so, just let me know, and I'll get
you either the address of the bar, or a grain of sand in the parking
lot. Whatever's more convenient.
