With the last IPv4 internet addresses having been allocated, and the only way forward being IPv6, it’s obvious that the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy should be on top of this issue.
Hunt around and you might wonder if he has ever heard of it.
Well, the Minister has his own site: www.minister.dbcde.gov.au, and Minister Stephen Conroy doesn’t mention it according to his search engine, while going out to google and entering "IPv6 site:minister.dbcde.gov.au" does find ONE mention, by Helen Coonan, way back in 2005 (see images below, taken 2010-02-05).
W…..T…..F…..!!! I rarely use such words, even those acronyms, but ONE F***ING MATCH for IPv6??? On the site of the Minister who has to get IPv6 in urgently? And it ISN’T from the Minister since Howard got booted out a parliamentary-term-and-a-bit ago? W….T….F…..!!!
And what if we search inside Conroy’s own webpage?
