Getting my IPv6 on

Somewhat motivated by Geoff Huston's keynote at linux.conf.au 2011, I've decided to pull my finger out and make a foray into IPv6. My colo provider, where daedalus.andrew.net.au lives is IPv6-enabled, so a quick email to their support department, and boom, thanks to the black magic of SLAAC, and daedalus has an IPv6 /64. I still don't quite understand how it works.

Comcast Business, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be quite so on the ball, so I've organised for a Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel to play around with at home.

Next, I need to throw around a few AAAA DNS records, and then probably watch everything grind to a halt.
