Ipv6 is coming. Are you ready for it?

I have no idea when IPv4 exhaustion will reach the point where you have to use IPv6. You have IPv4 now, and no doubt virtually all ISPs will keep people on IPv4 in some way (even if they have to use NAT) much like cable TV companies are providing at least some means for analog TVs to work (with boxes as the convert their TV systems over to all digital).
