11-Year-Old Paint Still Viable

What a pleasant surprise to find out that the trim paint we bought and started using over 11 years ago can still be used! Thanks to Debbie at the Salem Lowe’s store for the meticulous job she did pouring the paint into a new container and mixing us up a sample with all the new numbers for future purchase, saving us at least $40. It really does pay to store your unused paint properly, especially if you plan on continuing with that particular color anywhere else years later.


IPv6 Global Trial

From the SANS NewsBites Vol. 13 Num. 4:

The first “global scale trial” of IPv6 is scheduled to take place on June 8, 2011. The event is being coordinated by the Internet Society. For a 24-hour period, participants, including Facebook, Google and Akamai, will make their pages available via IPv6. Companies are being encouraged to switch to IPv6, as it is estimated that IPv4 addresses will run out by the end of this year. The event is aimed at raising awareness of the necessity of the shift from IPv4 to IPv6 and will also allow participants to identify and address problems. Internet users do not need to do anything special for the switch and are unlikely to experience problems, although a small fraction of users may encounter issues with misconfigured or misbehaving home network devices.
