    Out of curiosity, I just talked to one of the experts at my local ISP about this, and he says that at the provider's end, any problems will probably first show up in reduced availability of dynamic IPs as more customers sign up. There seems to be general agreement that the crunch is still a couple of years down the road, and there's even some speculation that there's at least some media hype in the current crop of reports, much like the Y2K "crisis" back when.

    We've been hearing this type of "DANGER!!! We'll run out of IPv4 addresses in two years! End of internet coming!" type of claims for at least 15 years now. Periodically, every about two years. So, I'm sorta tired of this agenda.
