Never underestimate the fearlessness of Network Geeks

I certainly wouldn't run my routers that way. It definitely takes some courage to run with that config register....

It's all gone folks

Mark the history calendars, February 3rd, 2011 marks the day IANA handed out the last of the /8's to the Regional Internet Registers (RIR's). The process that had been selected was that the last 5 /8's would be handed out, one to each region to ensure fairness. It should be noted that APNIC triggered the final distribution with the request and receipt of two /8's and is walking away with a total of three. Even with that distribution, they estimate they only will have 3 to 6 months remaining before exhaustion.
