|IPV4 Now Rationed In Europe|
| 4:34 pm on Sep 14, 2012 (gmt 0)|
|Strict rationing of these addresses - called IPv4 - has been started by the body that hands them out in Europe. |
From now on, companies can only make one more application for IPv4 addresses and, if successful, will only get 1,024 of them.
In addition, any application for more old addresses must demonstrate how an organisation is using the new, replacement, addressing scheme.
"The day has come, finally," said Axel Pawlik, managing director of the Ripe NCC that hands out addresses to European ISPs, firms and other organisations.

Spoken by a guy wearing a long trench coat in a dark alley in Silicon Valley: Pssst, hey buddy! Wanna buy some IP addresses?

Will a black market arise, trading in IP addresses?
Will a shortage of IPV4 addresses cause a rush?
Will the value of IPV4 addresses suddenly surge?
Scarcity! Scare city!
P.S. I've also heard that the world supply of toilet paper is about to run out!

As in duck crap?!
I do so love regressing. Being "an adult" or "professional" can be a bit wearing. Especially by week's end. It's now Friday, 5:40 P.M. Seriously, it's time to regress. Who has the keys to the liquor cabinet? I need a regression justification accelerant. :P

:: counting on fingers ::
/22 ? or four separate /24s?
i.e. individual buyers are now strictly rationed to the total number of IPV4 addresses held by the entire nation of North Korea. Brr.

... with a connection to a similarly clad guy in a similar alley somewhere south of the equator. Last time I looked, there were huge slabs of AfriNIC and LACNIC that were nothing but bogons as far as the eye could see.

No, the "crap" was in relation to the toilet paper running out.
The "duck" was used as a verb. :)

I agree. It's just too tiring to try to maintain such pretenses, so I usually don't even bother any more.
