During a conversation with vendor X, it was mentioned that some 
hardware was donated for an IXP in country Y.  Vendor X then asked 
how are things in country Y.  It's easier not to answer such a 
question than to say that that country Y was only pushing around 256 
Kbits/sec through the IXP.

Sometimes the problem is about money.  Sometimes the problem lies elsewhere.

There is an "ipv6webinar" next week where Sonatel will talk about its 
IPv6 experience.

;www.sonatel.sn.                        IN      AAAA

www.sonatel.sn.         259200  IN      AAAA    2001:4278:0:2::2

The above looks ok.  The web server is not accessible over IPv6.  The 
IPv6 adoption rate in Senegal is 0%.
