I think you and your buddy Mark were wildly more interesting than me, 
Ike and (our) Marc.  Maybe just to us since we see each other all the 
time. <g>

That's the highest form of flattery this list could have.  This isn't 
the west coast, japan or europe where the BSDs have a higher profile... 
We're in a boring stuffy city of finance firms. ;-)

well, why don't you tell them why.  I don't just invite people since 
they're from Florida or something ;-'

Welcome aboard. . . looking forward to you raising a discussion on IPv6 
migration in the US. ..  I know there are many others to chime in on 
this, including Alex at Pilosoft, the NYI guys, Spork from BWay, and 
that's just some those with ISPs/hosting firms. . .

You raised interesting stuff on IPv6 migration.  We all know that the US 
drags its feet on it since the US has control of most of the public 
network addresses.  And Japan is full steam ahead with implementation by 
2008 (?) and so is China.

What are the concrete steps others are taking in this direction.  NAT 
and dominance of IPv4 only takes US isv's so far. . .
