World IPv6 Day


Today is the international IPv6 day. This is an important day for IPv6 as it becomes a world-wide test for the functionality, feasibility, and potential impact it may have on the world. In my upcoming articles, I will be going over what IPv6 is, why we need it, and for geeky people, how to set up a tunnel broker to begin testing in their home networks.

It is important to understand that support by companies, ISPs and homes will be required to make this transition successful. Without demand from people, IPv4 will begin to run into issues as address pools at ISPs begin to deplete their resources for assigning addresses.

Companies like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, Government Sites, and others are all participating in this event to help spread awareness. During this time, some sites may see some issues, but rest assured, by the end of the day, sites will be back to normal and IPv6 will have taken a big step towards implementation.

Greetings to Everyone


I have decided recently to create a blog about my adventures in technology. I will be sharing information about current or new technology as well as conceptual ideas. I will try to post often when I get the chance and have an idea, but I hope that my posts are both entertaining and informational.

I would briefly like to talk about myself. I have been active in technology for at least 15 years with a degree in network management. I have extensive knowledge in software development using primarily C#, VB.NET, HTML and SQL. I have programmed for at least 10 years, starting with VB6 and HTML.

I will occasionally publish articles about both networking and development about personal and professional projects.

Be sure to check back soon.
