IPv6 in Montreal

Since I've moved back to Montreal from Paris, I haven't had time to re-set the IPv6 part of my LAN, which had been running off of a SIXXS tunnel for a few years.

The good news, is that my local ISP (Videotron) has been allowing IPv6 to the home for a few years already though 6rd... it's not yet native IPv6 to the home, but as far as I can tell it seems functionally useful (information available here).

So, I activated 6rd on my Asus router and got an IPv6 address as expected. This is good, so I will set up my home server (DNS, web, etc) to also work with IPv6 and move back to a hybrid IPv4/IPv6 home network... need a couple of days to work on that, so it will probably not happen before spring (ha!).

Still, it's good to see that IPv6 is spreading. I am quite impressed by Google's statistics here... seems like over 15% of users access Google through IPv6 today. That's a lot more than I expected! Glad to see that the transition is really happening.
