MC2 Post 934 The End Is Near. Last Block of IPv4 Addresses Allocated

Last Block of IPv4 Addresses Allocated,

Exhaustion Now Imminent

This is just a quick note to say that, in a ceremonial event in Miami, the last five blocks of IPv4 addresses have now been handed out by IANA, a part of ICANN. Each of the five regional registries -- North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia -- now have only a few million IP addresses to allocate.

IP address exhaustion will hit Asia first. With 24 million IP addresses used by APNIC in January 2011, and only around 50 million addresses left in its pool, exhaustion is 
expected to occur in the next few months. 
Europe will be next, probably towards the end of 2011, and North America will follow 
sometime in 2012.


Are You Prepared for The IPocalypse ???

IP addresses Are About to Run Out. 
Will the World End?


Super Bowl Dallas is Super Cold at 20 Below

And now three days of being battered by bitter cold, ice storms, treacherous roads, rolling blackouts, mass closures and mass transit breakdowns, North Texanas and their Super Bowl guests awoke this morning to … 


At 7 a.m., the temperature was around 20, 
but with winds, it felt like 8.

"Maybe a New Football Team in LA Area 
is not such a bad Idea..."
