My dad lost both hands and most of his forearms as a child. He has always preferred to use his own stumps as-is, rather than mucking about with prosthetics. But then he learnt to use his arms at an early age, and he was determined to do everything he could.
He can do practically everything you or I could do, except for things he simply can't reach or that require juggling to many things too rapidly. He has the neatest "handwriting" of anyone I know, he types by holding a pen, he can drive a car, develop software, and he's built a house extension. As an adult he's always been a productive member of society.
While you may develop the dexterity to use a prothethic. Don't discount the potential usefulness of your remaining limbs just as they are.
I'd say there's a non-zero risk of an IPv6 connection failing. When something breaks in IPv4, everyone notices and fixes it. But for IPv6, since hardly anyone is using it and applications should fail over, there's a good chance that a failure will go unnoticed.
Which ISP & web host would turn on IPv6 support by default with that kind of end user delay?
The traditional corporate response would be to blame a rogue programmer and fire them, then claim that they are improving their standards and processes to ensure nothing like it ever happens again. Perhaps the next manager or two up the food chain would also be in the firing line.

If your primary source of marketing is posting a cracked version to a torrent site, guess who is going to install it the most.
I live on the end of a fairly long piece of copper, for an urban area at least. The best ADSL speed I can get is around 4.5 Mbit. To get more than that speed what are my options? And if you're going to replace my copper with something, why not replace it with the best, most future proof technology?
$8,500 is a good investment for a technology that should last for the foreseeable future. Just don't ask each person to pay that full price right now.

... generate a random number, which we append to the URL, to make it appear as if a complex key is required. This is a pathetic attempt to discourage someone from downloading the ZIPs directly (ie. without having to login), if they deduce the URL pattern.
The ironing is delicious.
