those addresses...ah yes. when i first saw them in the ipconfig /all
i thought several problems were surpassed...but those addresses
are from an old and deprecated RFC IIRC  and other RFCs now state
that they cannot go beyond certain boundaries....so they might not
(or should not) be routed now.

ideal, i guess, for a basic network...SoHo or small network environment
of with all systems on a flat network.... but for enterprise. nope. all
gone :-(

youtube is now IPv6 ready - thanks Lorenzo Colitti (and his buddies!) but
the AAAA's are only given to their happy ipv6 select partners....(unfortunately
we are not yet one of those because we cannot guarantee 100% happy google
services on IPv6 for all of our network....
