Note the multiple prefixes. IPv6 is not just IPv4 with bigger addresses.
If you want to give your printers, etc. stable IPv6 addesses use ULAs.
Better yet, just subscribe to an ISP that will give you a static prefix.
Well, judging by his prefixes, he does.
Are you saying that a household that multihomes is abnormal? Perhaps
today, but, not necessarily so in the future.
I technically multi-homed back in 2001-2004. I didn't have BGP or
anything; my DSL provider offered it to me half-jokingly once, but since
the other side (Time Warner Cable) wouldn't to it, I didn't take them up
Alas, I will maintain that any household that multi-homes at this
stage is, indeed, abnormal.
