Definition: The current version of IP used on the Internet is version 4 (IPv4). IP is used to direct packets of information to their correct address. Due to a shortage of available addresses and to address the needs of the future an updated IP is being developed (IPv6).
I have a passion for technology and gadgets--with a focus on Microsoft and security--and a desire to help others understand how technology can affect or improve their lives. I also love spending time with my wife, 7 kids, 3 dogs, 4 cats, 3 rabbits, 2 ferrets, pot-bellied pig and sulcata tortoise, and I like to think I enjoy reading and golf even though I never find time for either.
