Why on earth would the proposed drafts for the ACTA treaty that will (probably) bring in new enforcement measures against copyright infringement, new rights to search & seize property, etc, be treated as a classified document in the US ? What can’t they share with the public that they can share with other governments and cleared corporate lobbyists ?
So much for change..
IPv6 is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the subnet to the IPv4 broadcast address, but that’s just peanuts to IPv6. – not quite DA
Whether or not you think IPv6 is a good thing the sheer size of the addressable range is very very easy to underestimate, so Aaron Toponce’s method of translating it into a (rather large) image is a rather nice one. I love his final little comment:
(If I wanted to fit the entire IPv6 space on my physical monitor right now, each pixel would need to represent 192,903,836,122,980,988,357,922,113,056,557 IP addresses. Cool.)
Tomorrow (Friday) we’re off to Rock’n’Rebuild at Hurstbridge High Oval which is being held to raise money for the Bendigo Bank Bushfire Appeal to assist people in the Kinglake, Flowerdale, etc areas that were burnt out recently.
My wife’s band “Donna and the Aspinauts” are playing at 2:50pm and they have The Vagrants headlining! 🙂
Note: If you’re looking for the 18th March quake you want this blog post instead..
Wow – that was wild, I thought at first one of the big gums trees was coming down here at the base of Mount Dandenong but that doesn’t get felt by a friend up the mountain and especially not a friend in Glen Iris!
There was a fairly rapid rise to a large shake (about 2-5 seconds) and then it died down again over the space of about another 5-10 seconds.
Update: The USGS is reporting that it was a magnitude 4.7 located around Loch near Korumburra over in Gippsland.

GeoScience Australia now have their website back up with their information about the quake, they estimate it as magnitude 4.6, and I’ve grabbed a copy of the seismograph as it’ll disappear in 90 days.
