"For Windows users:
        Microsoft made a fix available specifically for 8 June 2011,
please follow instructions in MS Knowledge base article 2533455. Note
that this fix will expire 10 June 2011."

Curious what this special hotfix is about, I went to
There it says:

"The following Fix it solution will resolve the issue by configuring
your computer to prefer IPv4, instead of IPv6. By default, Windows
prefers IPv6 over IPv4. This Fix it solution is temporary, to resolve
issues on World IPv6 Day for affected Internet users. On June 10, 2011
at 12:00AM, your computer will be configured to prefer IPv6 again after
your next reboot."

Is it me, or is this very lame?
Sort of defeats the idea op an IPv6 day.
