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

You're going to pick addresses like "2001:db8:10d:1::2", which isn't really that much longer than "203.0.113.42+192.168.1.2". In fact it's 7 characters (a good 30%!) shorter.

Most people use DNS, but if you need to remember IPs then that's what you'll do.
