> What the heck is ip6-literal.net

So, I was looking this up as I havn't used windows in forever. I then did a `whois ipv6-literal.net` and was surprised that Microsoft doesn't own it. That seems weird for them to use it in such a way?

I made a typo, it should have been ipv6-literal.net, which they do own. Still sucks for the rest of us who have to interoperate, though at least there is an NSS module available to make it a bit easier (https://www.samba.org/~idra/code/nss-ipv6literal/README.html). Not that IskKebab will be using it with musl... :_)
