That was a bit of a goof. I wasn't looking closely enough! The
ones that caught my attention were 2001:1868:2001::17 and
2001:1868:205::21. I didn't notice that there were more than three
numbers in some of the groups and completely missed the colons
with nothing in between.  I just glanced and saw just four groups
and didn't look closely enough. I also didn't realize that groups that
were all zeroes could be omitted. Still, they didn't look anything
like what I would have expected with eight groups for IPv6.


Still, if you squint, a couple of them did look a bit IPv4ish!
