A day to watch on the Internet

Not too far away, June 8 (http://server9.test-ipv6.com/ipv6day.html) is the 24-hour stress test day for the IPV6 appropriately called the World IPV6 day. IPV6 will surely take us from the unavialability of IPV4 address space. New changes bring new problems. On June 8, this Internet Society sponsored event features many participant companies to run their main websites on IPV6 protocol. Many of the stake holders, the ISPs, hardware and networking equipement makers, OS vendors, etc will be able to see how they size up against this big change. The guys with black hats will also be busy to see how they can continue to remain in business. You may want to know whether your computer is ready for this change. I checked mine by going to this site here http://test-ipv6.com/  which I got form here http://gcn.com/Articles/2011/05/30/World-IPv6-Day.aspx?Page=2  . This is a very informative article. Pasted below is how my computer would stack up.
