Maybe not.

You're right, I was supposed to complain on Feb. 6th. Eh, it's the Super Bowl (tm), I'd be busy then.

It doesn't matter, the center repository ran out on the first. That's what we were talking about.

If I am interpreting what I recall having read here properly, there are only 16 million addresses that are completely unclaimed left. Each of the 5 major regions has over 16 million of their own to distribute, and once they run out they must draw from that last global pool of 16 million(all but that last 16m were given out to the regions, not long ago).

Each region will start to run out within 2011, getting vanishingly smaller blocks of unused addresses from the global pool, eventually reaching a point where you just can't get any new addresses. Once the region runs out, companies will be unable to get any new addresses, so they must use what they already have.



(unlike some of what I type, this was NOT verified by a visit to google.com, so could be utterly wrong. Don't cite me on any of this)

The central repository is empty. The regional pools are emptying and will be empty in about eight or nine months. When these start to run out, most likely in the East Asian region first, then gradually the supply will dry up and companies will need to buy IPs from one another, increasing costs.

So until IPv6 becomes the main thing, people can theoretically buy up lots of IP-addresses now and sell them later for profit?

You'll probs need to buy them in bulk at high prices to start off with, so it'll be hard.

Presumably, one could buy a static IP adress from their ISP under a long-term contract, ensuring that they have no issues in the upcoming months.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the internet...

1 Day until APNIC runs out. You might want to hold onto something heavy so you aren't flung into space when the planet abruptly stops spinning.

Estimates between 6 and 8 days today.
1 Day until APNIC runs out.
I'm no mathematician, but I think it's been a few more than 7 days between these posts.

BEFORE IT RUNS OUT WE SHOULD ALL ILLEGALLY PIRATE AS MUCH just kidding, don't have me for breakfast Toady!

Oh well. Looks like Asia has already run out according to a google news search, and they're experiencing some problems.

Asia. I had read it wrong; the USA and Europe aren't running out; that's why you don't see them on the news.

No reason to panic, anyone, sorry for supporting the sensationalism. However, if you live in Asia...
