Full ACK.

I also see the relevance of world launch events, but I strongly doubt that world IPv4 stop would have any impact (other than us IT guys being seen as looking for an excuse for a day off).
Say I have an hybrid car. What is the relevance of deciding, on a given day, not to use the fuel engine? (or to go through the trouble of pumping the fuel out of the car).
