Like IPv6 came along in a "ripping big hurry"? It's been over 20 years,  
and I still don't have a commercial ISP providing me IPv6. And my home  
connection doesn't get v6 because the lame idiots at Earthlink never gave  
TWC any of the dozens of prefixes they own but don't announce.

(and the twc link at work... (a) "not enabled on the headend", and (b)  
doesn't work through a Ubee)
