Friday Fun: An IPv6 Pumpkin At Tomorrow's Keene (NH) Pumpkin Festival

Tomorrow, somewhere among the 30,000+ pumpkins displayed at the Keene Pumpkin Festival 2013, will be this pumpkin stating proudly “IPv6”. Probably most people won’t have a clue… but it will be a fun little thing for the geeks and technology folks out there.  Living here in Keene, New Hampshire, as I do, you wind up carving a lot of pumpkins because the pumpkin festival is really our largest annual community event.  After a while, you get tired of carving just simple faces, so it’s always fun to do something different.  If you look at some of the photos (more links to photos here), 30,000-ish pumpkins is a huge amount of pumpkins… and somewhere in there will be one saying IPv6! 🙂

What about you?  Are you going to carve any “IPv6 pumpkins” this year?  I thought about carving “::1”, but I thought even fewer people would know what that was! 😉
