The analogous concept would be something like a floating prefix, I suppose. And then for your static services, pick a static IP in your prefix. If the provider is doing things right, they should have full control over which client is getting which /64, and you should be able to specify that in your dashboard.

Too bad no one does that yet. I guess my project will be one of the first to do it right, lol.

Apparently "floating IPv6" is not a thing, at least not in Openstack.

It's kind of a shame, since the coolest feature of disposable VMs is that you should be able to transfer workload without having to update the DNS whenever you do it. πŸ€”

I hope I'm reading this wrong, because apparently Digital Ocean issues droplets /124 subnets for IPv6, and they need to be statically assigned in order to use them.

What is it with VPS providers and their aversion to letting SLAAC do its thing?

I wonder when we'll get the Tumblr Dashboard experience powered by ActivityPub? :D

I had a dream that I skipped draft at my game store in order to be a passenger in a really sketchy ride where we did extreme air stunts in a passenger plane.

Everyone was like "draft starts in 15 minutes" and I'm just "this is more important."

tbt when Nvidia researchers trained a neural network to generate images of cats and from the internet-sourced input data it learned that Impact 24pt White is a defining characteristic of cats

Getting to design an IPv6-first web application really makes me hate the state of IPv4 on the internet at large.

I ought to get a little browser plugin that lets you know when a site is using IPv6 or 4. I can usually only tell when I go into the network inspector.

I'm just your average guy in tech. Open source is super neat.

My broad interests are in technology, development, automation, and especially education. I went to grad school to study educational data mining, the process of using data from classroom artifacts to improve instruction and understand the psychology of learning. Now I'm a software developer at a startup.

I'm really interested in game design, especially as a proxy for thinking about education. Right now I'm particularly into Magic the Gathering.

My hosting is provided by masto.host. Having a private Mastodon instance is really cool (especially when you use it as a website!), but takes some getting used to since it becomes harder to find new people and for new people to find you. If you are interested in engaging with other people, you'll need to put in the extra work. And, of course, you can always just find an instance at JoinMastodon.
