Re: Five bucks gets you a home network

Mike,

Your down on Bill's list as one of the peering coordinators.
We are just getting to some of the more popular peer points.
We should talk. We are do about 2.5 gig in aggregate so some
traffic must come from and go to HE.

I need to talk with you as peering coordinator.

Or you could just get your IPv6 /64 prefix (18 trillion trillion trillion
addresses) for free using any one of the free IPv6 tunnel brokers.
Hurricane runs a free IPv6 tunnel broker at http://tunnelbroker.com

It would be a bizzare twist of fate that if by quashing regular NAT the
cable companies sped up IPv6 adoption.

The toaster (which is running NetBSD) and the refrigerator are networked
using the IPv6 mantra. So if DSL and Cable companies find that they can
sell IPv6 to kitchen appliences at $5 per houshold, you think this
could lead to deployment?

So my new IPv6 cell phone can get an SMS from my refrigerator if the milk
is going bad.

Now $5 if it also does fire and burgler alarm functions, it is cheaper than
a phone line.

If I get $5 dollars from a million users ... hmmmm.

Don't forget gamers and peer to peer networking.
