Nice article by Chris Palmer - World IPv6 Day and Windows

There is a nice blog post by Chris Palmer with Microsoft on World IPv6 Day and Windows. What is nice about the article is the fact it covers some of the long term impacts you will face and the solutions that are in place and how some of those solutions might not work perfectly.
For those that are following IPv6 much of this is not new but for the majority of Windows users out there all this information is entirely new and really important. Hats off to Chris for putting it all together in a nice easy to use format.

Getting read to head off to Microsoft TechEd

This weekend will be packing stuff and making sure I have all the correct events in my packed calendar for the week of Microsoft TechEd. In addition to all the regular scheduled events there are tons of side sessions and events happening and trying to keep track of all of them is almost impossible! I am excited to be heading back to catch up with fellow Microsoft MVP's several who are presenting.
In addition to all this I have several CAv6TF and NAv6TF items going on too. I hope to soon have monthly meetings happening for the CAv6TF in both the Bay Area and in Los Angeles. I will update as that finalizes and firms up.

A chance to see my Deploying IPv6 in a Microsoft Enterprise Network presentation again

Groupware Technology will be hosting a Tech Day event at our Campbell office on Thursday the 12th of May in the afternoon. If you are interested in seeing my Deploying IPv6 in a Microsoft Enterprise Network presentation please RSVP for the event. This is the same presentation I gave at the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit less than a month ago. Feel free to bring along any question you might have regarding IPv6 as it is a topic I love to chat about. Hope to see you there!

PacITPros meeting tonight will have live demo of IPv6 RA flood DOS for Windows 7 and Server 2008

If you are interested in seeing the behavior hands on for the Windows 7 and Server 2008R2 IPv6 RA flood denial of service then you need to show up at tonight's Pacific IT Professionals user group meeting in San Francisco. Sam Bowne will be showing off this simple but effective DOS. I have a feeling there will be more IPv6 specific issues found over the next year or two simply because not enough folks have been testing IPv6 on a regular basis. Hope to see you there.
