Submission + - IANA allocates 2 /8s to APNIC, exausts freepool (

davburns writes: The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority has allocated two /8s of IPv4 address space to APNIC. This also triggers the IANA to allocate the final five /8s — one to each of the RIRs. APNIC suggests that this will hold them for three to six months. After that, sites without IPv6 have something less than full Internet connectivity. Potaroo has a slightly longer estimate of September when RIR Unallocated space is exausted.

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
