Default Microsoft spends $7.5m on IP addresses

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03...soft_ip_spend/

Quote:
It’s official, IP addresses are now more expensive than domain names.

Nortel Networks, the bankrupt networking hardware vendor, has sold 666,624 IPv4 addresses to Microsoft for $7.5m, according to Delaware bankruptcy court documents (pdf)

Somewhat related is the interesting series of articles called the "Politically Incorrect Guide to IPv6" which detail some of the issues surrounding IPv6:
Part 1: http://jl.ly/2011/02/18
Part 2: http://jl.ly/Internet/v6incor2.html
Part 3: http://jl.ly/2011/02/27

At the time of writing I'm getting a server error, but I just so happened to read this last Tuesday ...

There is also a bunch of interesting stuff at some msdn blog, but I can't find that right now ...

A little green man told me that "Tricky, the situation is. Does not come easy, a quick solution."
