Today is World IPv6 Day, organised by the Internet Society (ISOC). Internet Society – World IPv6 Day.
Read the “About IPv6″ section of the Irish IPv6 Task Force website if this means nothing to you :-)

In Ireland there is a good IPv6 readiness site,, sponsored by the INEX, the Dublin Internet Neutral Exchange.
The Irish IPv6 Task Force has also a website for the day,, the site includes a monitoring tooolset that monitors IPv6 readiness for high profile public and private sector Irish internet sites.
