Re the "funeral" article by Lawson:
"APNIC thinks those allocations can continue for about five years."
Interesting, because I'd asked a rep from my (local regional) provider
about this, and his guess was the same, about 5 years. Presumably that
means they've got a big enough block of IPs, relative to number of
current subscribers, that they don't foresee any significant problem
with dynamic IPs for a while yet. And most people I've talked to have
agreed that restrictions in the availability of dynamic IPs will
almost certainly be the first noticeable effect of the IPv4 situation.
Which shoots you right up the ***, DasFox.
