Thanks, Grant.  For those who want to wake up and smell the coffee,
remember that IPv4 addresses are nearly all allocated!
So World IPv6 day is indeed a great opportunity for web site
operators, developers, end users, enterprises and anyone else who
wants their stuff to work down the road to test things out.

I just signed up for a SixXS account - thanks for the tip.  I don't
know if I'll get it before the big day, but I'll want it anyway.

What sorts of things would be most helpful for Ubuntu folks to try
that day?
