I know Jason was going to cover this at his blog over at deedoubleyou.net, but he hasn’t. And this was posted on the 4th of Febuary, back when the IPV4 exhaustion thing was current. So I thought I would write a little something about this before its entirely outdated.
Everybody knows we are running out of IPV4 address, and has read about it on about a million technical sites. Well our local paper decided do a small section about it in its ‘world news’ section.
As an IT Professional/Technical person, reading this explanation was painful to say the least. Now, I know they are writing for a non-technical audience, but a small attempt for some sort of accuracy would have been nice.
So without further ado, look after the break for a copy of the article, and my points after reading it.
Oh, and Guernsey Press, keep away from technical writing for a bit please
