Apologies to Mike,

It was not my intention to brow-beat him publicly. Indeed, I acknowledge
that he has the problem well in hand and is actively working on resolving
the issue.

My only intent was to point out to the person who claimed an ip6.arpa
record and a host which had an IPv6 address on its interface alone were
not a web site accessible on IPv6.

I fully expect the AAAA record to be placed soon and it looks like that
is the last remaining hurdle. Once that is done, I will pay my dues.

Owen

While I agree doing v6 is nice and all, I think brow-beating an un-paid volunteer on something they already said they were trying to get working is a bit much.
