What does it mean?

All my Web-sites are now accessible by IPv6. What does that mean for you?

Well, in most cases it means that – unless you’re at, say MIT where an argument with the IANA is preventing them from being allocated proper IPv6 addresses, or so I understand – if you’re already hooked up with IPv6, the Web-site will be just that bit faster for you than for folks who haven’t. Even if you’re running through a V6 tunnel broker, you may notice a slight improvement in speed.

It also means that I can do rather a bit more with the sites than I have thus far, although I’m not exactly planning to rush into anything huge and new just yet.

Yes, these are just a few of the wonders of a late-20th-century technology that has been too-long delayed.
