OPME would, i think, require too much governing to prevent abuse. it probably wouldn't be too hard to find a day/time when most opers are asleep or ignoring operwalls when one could use it on a non-drone channel. and with some drones now being eggdrop 1.6.* for win32, it could become difficult to di...

Topic: Why do YOU use ipv6?
Replies: 20
Views: 15598

most core network equipment is moving to support ipv6, but it's a slow rollout because there's a lot of equipment to upgrade. upgrades are mainly starting at the larger networks (ie - AT&T, UUNet, etc) before it trickles down to the smaller networks.
