Good bye IPv4 and welcome IPv6 yep, the IP address with the assigned names and numbers is going to run out come January. we know it was going to happen but what really is going to happen when all the addresses actually do run out ? besides the switch to IPv6 even though we can register billions of new IP addresses, but one issue is why can't they let the older ones go, like those that have been around since 1995 and haven't been updated?

With IPV6 every 3 square feet of the milkway gets an IP address. No more broadcasts either with IPv6... only multicast, anycast, and unicast.
