	Hmm... Just throwing an idea out there... I think I saw somewhere where 
my D-Link 655 supported it. I've even got a spare G4 server with minimal 
hard drive space I can use. Who knows if the NIC will work with ipv6. No 
idea if my Mini can support it wirelessly. However if the stars align 
and it can pique some interest why not make it a non-serious project for 
a few people and see if we can make the system into an open content 
server not connected to the net (this way we avoid the ipv4 <--> ipv6 
conversion mess)...

	I've been doing this off and on for a few years with ipv4. Basically a 
LAMP server with some PHP apps. More than this is beyond my experience. 
Still, if someone is interested drop by and we can set things up here as 
a test.

	Incidentally, getting an old PC for a short time instead of the G4 
isn't out of the question. I just have to justify it to the folks in
