Funny you should say this;
This morning, the US Federal Government released its final rule for
Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) relating to IPv6.
It isn't a push down to everyone, but it is a push down to all the
vendors of the Federal Government.
I haven't read the whole thing yet, I can only digest so much
government-speak in a singe dose. I'm going to definitely have to read
this in several different sittings to prevent indigestion, lapsing into
unconsciousness, or permanent brain damage. :-)
Read at you own risk. :-()
