I have attended the RIPE 64 conference in Ljubljana, which was held at the Grand Hotel Union. The conference was really well organised, so all the best to the organisation team. Beside the very good lectures, they also organised the journey into Postojnska cave, which is one of the longest caves in the world (if you ever come to visit Slovenia, it’s a must see) and you can ride a train inside the cave for about 10 minutes. The fun part of the conference was a foosball (table football) tournament, which we played. It was nice getting to know the attendees and many thanks to Mr. McKay for making it possible for me to attend the conference with him and for his kind visit !
On 12th and 13th of May there was an IPv6 summit in Ljubljana. On the first day I have joined the IPv6 deploy workshop, where two Greek researchers informed us about all the possibilities of IPv6, with good examples written also on slides. On the second day the summit speakers were presenting IPv6 topics and exposed how IPv6 works in the real environments. There is also a Video archive available at go6.si website. Next summit will be in November 2010.
I was happy to receive a native IPv6 /64 subnet from AMIS today. It is still in the testing phase, this means they aren’t offering it to all customers yet. A native IPv6 connection means, that I can now avoid using IPv6 tunnel brokers and access the world directly over the IPv6 stack.
I received a native IPv6 subnet on one of my dedicated servers. It is now being used for hosting a freenode leaf server. I am still waiting for my home ISP provider AMIS to enable native IPv6, I hope that they will do it soon.
