This is hype.

The last high level IP block was sold last week. This will not melt down the internet. This will affect hardly anyone.

What will happen in the short term is that the private owners of ip blocks will start selling/renting/leasing them to others and service providers will be silently NATing you if they run out of IP addresses.

Meanwhile, ipv6 deployment is progressing at an orderly but slow pace and will eventually become more and more mainstream.

At some point, people are going to start turning off IPV4 service a few years from now. That is when some parts of the internet will start going dark for the few remaining pure ipv4 users.

And by "a few years from now" you mean when the last IPv4-only piece of equipment leaves the Internet.

Which might occur sometime this century.
Don't underestimate the potential of computer-related technology to suddenly have its user count explode. Remember when the iPhone was some amazing new thing that only fortunate people could afford? And then a billion clone products came out, so now a huge number of people have them all of a sudden? I could see somthing like that (Obviously, clone products would not apply.) happening to the IPv4-IPv6 conversion.

Hell, it wasn't so long ago that computers themselves were somthing that only businesses, the millitary, and nerds used. And yet, here we are.

According to Hurricane Electrics, we've run out of IANA IPv4 addresses. WE'RE SCREWEEEDDDD [/sarcasm]

Edit: Gah, my internet is dropping about 1/4ths of the packets sent on pings. That's not good.

Edit2: Okay, I think the slowdown's stopped for now, thankfully.

Edit3: Ernope. Still slowing down, shifting between okay and 1/4th loss. That sucks royally.

Well, the estimates are still unclear, but it appears that within the next 14-2 days

If I come to this website on the next 15-3 days, and this doesn't happen, I'm going to complain about people overhyping threats.

So, basically Saturday, February 5, 2011. If Doomsday doesn't occur on Feb. 5th, you'll see a complaining post on Feb. 6. Mark your calendars.

It means your argument is null. You argued that it could be 06 at their time. I proved you wrong.

Well, time to add another mark to the counter.
