RFC8200: IPv6 Is an Internet Standard

You wouldn’t believe it – after almost 22 years (yeah, it’s been that long since RFC 1883 was published), IPv6 became an Internet standard (RFC8200/STD86). No wonder some people claim IETF moves at glacial speed ;)

Speaking of IPv6, IETF and glacial speeds – there’s been a hilarious thread before Prague IETF meeting heatedly arguing whether the default WLAN SSID should be IPv6-only (+NAT64). Definitely worth reading (for the entertainment value) over a beer or two.

  1. I just read the IETF thread and it's funny as hell.

    Dog food, cat food, snippyness, condescending tones, passive aggressive, etc.
    Scott Adams could have a lot of fun with this.

    1. Funny? That's just frustrating. One person complaining about it despite all the good reasons given to the contrary. Ivan, I want the last 15 minutes of my life back. :-P

    2. Or maybe Bruno and myself just gave up and laugh because crying would be too awkward ;)
