  1. I hear that soon we will all have a personnal ip number. IP version 4 or something similar? Is this a good thing?

    Where did you hear that?
    There are too many people for individual IPv4 numbers. IPv6 could do. But I still doubt that.
    It's a Bad Thing if something like this happens.

    I believe its IPv6. Has further information I presume. Some people think that IP numbers will be alot harder to memorize using ipv6.

    in so many ways dotted hex is much more efficient than dotted decimal. I am looking forward to ipv6 a great deal.

    There are some great explanations of how to easily and quickly read hex - lemme see if I can find them and post it here - it's pretty awesome!

    Please do so! As hex otherwise looks more or less like gibberish to me... Would be nice to know how to read it... :)

    You won't get your own personal IP unless you pay for it. You do, ya know ;)
