But school officials are defending the sentence, saying the school was abiding by a state guideline that banned 'minimal nutrition' foods. 'Whether or not I agree with the guidelines, we have to follow the rules,' said school superintendent Jack Ellis."

Comment Hehe, I didn't even know I had native ipv6 (Score 1) 283

until I installed windows 7 and it got an ipv6 adress automatically without a hitch.. (only used straight XP boxes and a FreeBSD with static ipv4 ip before)

Apparently my isp has been doing native ipv6 for almost a year now and it works like a charm.. for ipv6 enabled sites and services that is. ;)
