Y2K. The May 21 Rapture. IPv6 Day. Lucky for us all, IPv6 Day will probably have about as much of a cataclysmic effect as the other two. Here's what you need to know about IPv6 Day, how you'll be affected and why you shouldn't panic.

snip

So what and when is IPv6 Day?
IPv6 Day is a 24-hour test drive of IPv6, when major companies try the new protocol. This takes place Wednesday, June 8.
Who's participating? Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks are major players in IPv6 Day in the United States, as are the State, Commerce and Veterans Affairs departments.
Why are they doing this? These companies are flipping the switch on IPv6 to encourage other Web sites to start prepping for the change before we exhaust all the IPv4 addresses.
Will it keep me from accessing my favorite sites? In theory, no. It shouldn't be a problem. IPv6 will be running alongside IPv4, so the day will be a total success if nobody notices anything different.
What could go wrong? There's a chance that your computer or other device will have problems accessing sites that are running both IPv6 and IPv4 at the same time.

How can I test my computer? Head to this "eye test" to see whether your computer is able to access sites running both protocols within 10 seconds.

Results of my test: Facebook FAIL!!!
