Funny example for translation news... May 18, 2010

Thanks for the story, which is "interesting" also in a translation perspective. The writer either cannot write proper English, or this has been made into English by MT? I assume you pointed out the story because of it's content, and not the examples of bad English...

yep May 18, 2010

Øystein, you are right about English)

Anyway, considering IPv6 and non-Latin trend it's but another fuss about nothing IMO. For example, about 50k corporate users have 1 (one, single, the only) external IP address. So one should tell 'white' IPs from dynamic ones. Also there're a lot of 'reserved' IPs which still are not assigned. Why?
It's all about $$$.

Incredibly inaccurate news May 18, 2010

I don't even know where to begin. Everything in this "news item" is incorrect, from the fact that "IP addresses" will no longer be available for deploying new services (a transition from IPv4 to IPv6 is already occurring, there are global policies for reserving IP addresses for new entrants to the market, etc.), down to the name of the president of ICANN's CEO (his name is Rod Beckstrom).
I'm writing this comment while I participate in LACNIC XIII, the 13th meeting of the Regional Internet Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean, where this topic is being discussed in great detail (e.g. )
So, no need to panic, everything will be all right
