RIPE NCC: "Today, at 15:35 (UTC+1) on 25 November 2019, we made our final /22 IPv4 allocation from the last remaining addresses in our available pool. We have now run out of IPv4 addresses."

concept: have ARIN shut down block transfers to kill off the trade in IPv4 space

@er1n I missed the first word and thought it actually happened and panicked a little bit. 😐

@er1n lol they won't, it makes them money too

and there is too much money moving around in that ecosystem for any sort of policy to go through at ARIN

@staticsafe i really love how they're like Move To IPv6 But Also Give Us Money To Keep Doing IPv4 Stuff

@June @hirojin @er1n fortunately the transition to 64 bit is going relatively smoothly

@hirojin @June @er1n adoption obviously isn't 100% but I'm sure laptop, desktop, and server adoption is pretty dang up there

@wilbr @June @er1n first off, i am very specifically talking IoT

second: there's a lot of use of our discarded 32bit computers in the global south

however, most 32 bit operating systems switched to 64 bit time a long while ago

except for Linux and android.
Linux is one the most used systems in IoT devices
