Wowwwww..... some days ago the deadline (or the extreme scarcity line) 
was mid-2011!!!

So i've connected to potaroo again and what has happenned was a change in 
the mathematical model... Geoff says this one is a closer fit!

This is starting to get scary... 12/2009 is only 2 years and 7 months 
away, and 9 months after that LIRs/NIRs will start to get the "sorry, we 
don't have more blocks" answer........ i've already read some new policy 
proposals about ending IPv4 allocations, but.....

Also curious to see now that Geoff's crystal ball is converging to Tony 
Hain's study dates and not on the opposite direction.
