IPv6 Day Silliness :)

by on Jun.03, 2011, under Administration, Frivolous, News

Well, in honor of IPv6 day, I decided to spurn people along. I created an IPv6 validation badge of my own, and a few other things to prod people to get their providers to switch.

I’ve also updated http://ipv6.chronophage.net with a new look. It also shows you a video that warns you of the real and present dangers of not switching to IPv6, or celebrates your IPv6 achievement with an INTERNET classic ;)

Making the pages was fun, especially using php to spit out the various dynamic graphics. In one spot I use a validator lifted from here On the main page i simply have this SetEnvIfNoCase REMOTE_ADDR "^[0-9a-f:]+$" IPV6_USER=1 in my apache config, and check for that variable in my shtml index. I use a php filter elsewhere. This is to test various ways of IPv6 validation. If you see an error, please comment.

Making dynamic graphics was straight out of the php documentation. That language has a function for everything!

No one will accuse me of being a website designer, I hope it’s ugly enough for you.

Anyways, have fun! Happy (pending) IPv6 day!
