IPv6 as the Ark

I just found this in my archives as part of a discussion about IPv6 uptake:

The point is that the storm clouds have well and truly gathered, thunder is rolling in the hills, great big rain drops are splotting into the dust all around us, and what are we  doing? Wandering around the outside of the Ark tut-tutting about the quality of the  woodwork and loudly suggesting the construction of various sorts of rowboats.
