Hi Omo,

I apologise, I missed one in the database.  My mistake and I’m willing to admit when I make a mistake and I’m wrong – in this case I surely was.

The rest of the email though stands – and you’re welcome to verify all the other percentages.

They can be verified at:
and http://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6

Sorry for the mistake though above, I was doing a manual search on the database file that I’d ftp’d and some how missed something ☺

Hope to hear from you on the challenge though! Would love to see you leading by example on the v6!

We all have our worries about Cloud Innovation – but if you’re going to give stats to the list – at least make them accurate.

Cloud innovation according to the AfriNIC database has 2 /12s and 1 /11, which is 33% below what you claim in your email below.

Is it?

whois -B -h whois.afrinic.net<http://whois.afrinic.net> -r -T aut-num -T inet6num -T inetnum -i og 'ORG-CIL1-AFRINIC'

Some interesting things about this space though.  The majority of it (shockingly) is announced out of South Africa and visible via the South African internet exchanges.  *Shrug*

I wonder how correct that is if you got the numbers wrong.  The point however was that the addresses are being depleted so the noise is not necessary.

I'd also like to remind you that you are a board member and your commentary is often inappropriate and unbecoming .... regardless of disclaimers.
