We are absolutely, definitively, completely and utterly out of IPv4 addresses, warns RIPE

Re: The internet will be privatised

agreed. there is actually an IPv6/IPv4 gateway block that can be used to cover ALL IPv4 addresses with equivalent IPv6 ones. Why isn't THIS being used???

The reason this is not being widely used is it requires DNS to synthesize the IPv6 pointers. This means it needs to be setup at your ISP's recursive name server and your ISP probably thinks it is just "too much work". Since I run my own name server and NAT setup, I can do this on my own.
