That's why a wiki is cleaner than this list where people only can
add good stuff at the end of a thread of bad stuff.

Nobody asked for something edible. Just go to http://www.getipv6.info
register as a user, then go to the page that doesn't have enough 
URLs on it, and paste in the two or three that you think would

It is all done. Go to that site that you like, copy the url from
the location bar (or right click and copy) then go to the wiki
page, click edit and paste the URL somewhere near the one that you did
