2012 has been designated the year of IPv6 launch and, to do my part, I have tweaked my infrastructure to ensure full, and future-guaranteed, IPv6 connectivity.

The following domains now support connections via IPv6:

DNS may still be propogating, but all should be 100% within 48 hours.

In order to test this, and to enable permanent IPv6 connectivity to my home, I had to configure a 6-in-4 tunnel to my server box using OpenVPN and the instructions at zagbot. A note to anybody else trying this. The instructions imply that it might work for you without the "sudo /sbin/ip -6 neigh add proxy ${BASERANGE}:${V6NET}::2 dev eth0" line. For me, it did not. Before panicking that things aren't working, try it with that line!
