1) See! I always told you there was no real shortage!
2) Great! So at least the U.S. Guberment may actually be able to make
their money back on this whole elaborate DARPA networking experiment.
3) I wonder what "fair market value" value means. Maybe we should ask
4) This news has sent IPv4 futures plumeting in overnight trading on the
CBOE. In other news, gold, oil, and hog futures are all up.
5) Oh, that's nothing! Just wait until California Governor Gavin Newsom
signs into law the inevitable bill requiring all hardware sold within
the State of California to fully support addressing and routing of the
220.127.116.11/3 block by no later than January 1, 2026. (That right there
is 32 /8 blocks!)
