Internet engineers tear into United Nations' plan to move us all to IPv6

hell will freeze over.....

hell will freeze over before government and organisations will take and use the advice of actual engineers who work in said arena...

Lets say for a minute that when IP4 became apparent it would not be fit for use in a few years time that they asked actual network engineers for solutions The people who for years had been maintaining the shire on a piss poor budget... The solution would be a cost effective, simple to implement and workable solution that would be easier to expand on later if need.

but no....

first of all, you have to have meetings with people that the only knowlage of moving packets about are brown ones stuffed with low denomination bank notes. These meetings and brain storming sessions will have to take place in exotic locations and will need at least 6 sessions. Then they will send an obligatory memo to the network engineers outlining the proposed plans, when the network guys tell them what a stupid plan they have, that means they will need a further 6 sessions brainstorming in another exotic location.... Then decide that the network engineers dont know what they are talking about, and the bloke they met in the bar in the hotel they were having the meetings in have a tailor made solution already for them... the company the bloke works for will foot the bill for another 3 long weekend breaks in even more expensive and exotic locations, (including hookers and drugs)... the team then come back from holiday, then tell the network engineers what the plan is and they have the job of implementing some shitty kit that is not going to do what's needed.
