Which is precisely the same thing that happens with any firewall. You just specify port / host and or you let specific hosts cut holes for specific periods of time. None of that changes.
How do you [Slashdot users] see IPv6 transition actually happening?
a) Carriers and ISP have support (mostly done)
b) Cellular (mostly done)
c) Default is switched for home / small business (mostly not done). Then they have a shared pool of v4 addresses for v4 traffic rather than one address per location.
d) Enterprises start running dual stack
e) v4 is mostly retired
Will each internet user have dual stack?
Probably each carrier. You'll see the v4 address space living inside some subnet at an IP address inside your ISP's allocation.
IPv6 is much more complex, how will companies support users who barely understand IP addressing when IPv6 is going to seem like a long string of meaningless characters?
What do end users care? How do companies support their end users not understanding all the details of ARP vs. IP addressing. They don't they just make is seamless.
How does blocking work when everybody can have a trillion addresses?
You block a range. And it actually works because there is no NAT!
Can people have a trillion addresses?
Far more. The minimum subnet is a
Do they have a block allocated to each user/system?
The ability to actually block or unblock what you need how you need it rather than randomly just disallowing a bunch of stuff and then punching huge holes in the wall that anything get through when you need to get out.
It actually contributes quite a bit to functionality. An equally unskilled user can handle more complex screens and those screens can scale better.
No lots of people dislike it. However it has some major advantages in terms of allowing screens to be more complex with a higher degree of understanding.
Deference — less competition between UI elements and application elements. What is expected is less noticeable
Clarity — text is legible at every size, icons are precise and lucid, elements are subtle and appropriate, and a sharpened focus on functionality motivates the design
Depth — visual layers and realistic motion are used to assist users’ understanding
That wasn't achievable with older hardware an OSes. Now that it is achievable it will allow for better applications.
Then we need a better vaccine.
OK I stand corrected. Thank you.
Ebola is a bacteria. But AFAIK that's the basic idea, merge genes of different viruses to create better forms of smallpox. That's what the samples are for to be able to create vaccines.
I'm saying use it for vaccines against weapons not MAD.
I agree that GP's point is silly. Btt we probably would need smallpox and and smallpox research to construct a vaccine against a weaponized smallpox. I remember after 9/11 how scared everyone was about weaponized anthrax, but at least we understood most everything about how anthrax operates.
Good point about the 61.5. Absolutely changes things if there are different scales.
That's why I used an exponent.
Of course we should be reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. I fully support large investments in green technology. That's different than a 0 harm policy enforced imprisonment.
I agree with you. But that's the sort of balanced measure where we do a cost benefit analysis and see a decent improvement to the environment without having to inflict great harm (and arguably a benefit) on humans. Very different than the rhetoric of our needs don't matter.
