Fun fact of the day

Fun fact of the day: the IPv6 address for www.bbc.co.uk is 2001:4b10:bbc::2. :)

(There's also www.cisco.com, which uses 2001:420:80:1:c:15c0:d06:f00d, and www.facebook.com, which uses 2620:0:1c18:0:face:b00c::. Facebook also uses addresses along the lines of 2620:0:1cff:dead:beef::381 along the way. I'm not sure if anyone's using anything involving deca:fbad.)

Domain hacks are dead, long live IP(v6) hacks. ^^

Advantage of being an 'early' adopter, I suppose ^-^

Yeah — the BBC at least definitely seems to have gotten lucky there. :) (Well, "lucky" as in "someone at RIPE got a good chuckle out of it".)
