The measures are being brought in to ration the last/8 available to RIPE NCC, with 400,000 address previously being allocated every day. In addition to the limit, organizations applying for IPv4 addresses will be required to demonstrate that they are deploying IPv6."
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
