Well it didn't take me too long to get an IPv6 home network set up with a
DHCP /56 allotment tonight.
....now I need to figure out how to dynamically DNS it all up because um I
have no clue how to get to all my stuff if all my stuff gets an address
I'm guessing I can locally statically assign the /56 side of the address if
they are going to give me 4,722,366,482,869,645,213,696 IP addresses to use
My LAN and WAN addresses only have this part in common 2600:8804 of the
2600:8804::/34 ....but my LAN is getting assigned the consistent /56 I
......I am excited about being a n00b again.

Cool! Um, I think it's cool anyway.
I'm still pretty peevish at IPv6 for not supporting NAT. The address of my
printer should not depend on which carrier I'm using.
Used to be I had two different Internet connections at work, and I was able
to set up one as the primary and one as the failover. Worked like a dream
... but it would not be possible under IPv6.
