right?  they're lucky to be in a/p.  at least they can get a /22.

i especially like the "the way they would like" part.  the way i would
like to run my business is to go into the office every friday and scoop
up the cash that fell from the sky all week.

reality is such a pain in the ass.


+1 aren't we way past all of the predicted exhaustion dates.  There are
slot of as's that have ignored this.

        predictions are ... predictions!  guesses.  swag.   nothing

       i will say this however.  after fifteen years, I am exhausted
listening to

       ipv6 v. ipv4  bickering.   (and after five years of running native

       networks - i've re-introduced ipv4 to the mix... go figure)


I see your point.  The world was supposed to end dozens of times as well.
 Sorry to hear you had to reintroduce v4.  I suppose if dinosaurs were
still around we'd have to capitulate to them too.  The people who see a
T-rex and say "hey I thought they were extinct?!" would just get eaten. but
I digress. I'm not sure I'd open a new ISP at this point and expect to get
any respectable amount of IP space from the RIR right now.
