I was surprised to notice this morning that my computer had received its very own IPv6 address. Sometime in the last couple of weeks, Comcast finally enabled IPv6 in my neighborhood and [miraculously] my home router was configured to run with it.

IPv6 has been around for 15 years, but for reasons I cannot divine, the Comcasts of the world decided to wait until the IPv4 pool was exhausted before starting to deploy it.

In any event, here’s to the end of NAT. Time to secure your computers!
