[NANOG] fair warning: less than 1000 days left to IPv4 exhaustion

Since nobody mentioned it yet, there are now less than 1000 days projected
until IPv4 exhaustion:

Do you have an IPv6 plan?

How long do you think it will be until Sarbanes Oxley and SAS 70 auditors
start requiring disclosure of IPv4 exhaustion as a business continuity
risk, as well as the presence or lack thereof of an IPv6 plan?

When do you plan on telling your customers?  (afterwards?)

Ahhh, you don't have any customers that have to plan to buy equipment 2
years in advance.  Ok, I understand.

Mike.
ps. 1000 days assumes no rush, speculation, or hoarding.  Do people do
that?

pps. Of course these are provocative comments for amusement.  :)

ppps. Or not if you don't have any kind of IPv6 plan.  Sorry, sorry...
