Ars Technica on IPv4 exhaustion

They have one on, but it's not reachable:

root at nagios:/home/fbulk# dig AAAA +short
root at nagios:/home/fbulk# wget -6
--2014-06-22 21:17:31--
Resolving 2620:0:2b10:101::3
Connecting to|2620:0:2b10:101::3|:80... failed: Network is unreachable.
root at nagios:/home/fbulk#

It's been so long that I had forgotten that I had suggested they remove the AAAA while they don't actually have IPv6 connectivity.  Perhaps they want to see how well Happy Eyeballs works. =)

Unfortunately all too common. We're also leaning on them to be more
complete in their IPv6 support.
