Hi guys,

as a fun thing I automatically watch ARINs announcements of IPv4 /8
address space left.

Begin of August they got down to the last 2 of /8, now they just got at 1.5
At the current, expect that the last /8 is started to be handed out on
the 20th May 2014 in North America, requiring everyone there to deploy
IPv6 if they want/need more IPv4 addresses.

Expect everyone in the USA to be totally surprised when this happens
(like every year in Chicago in Winter when it starts snowing)  ;-)
