browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/22

For my link archive: [WayBack] browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User (thanks haimg):

According to RFC2732, literal IPv6 addresses should be put inside square brackets in URLs, e.g. like this:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]/index.html

If you also need to specify a port other then 80 to access the server it has to be placed after the closing bracket:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]:8888/index.html

Of course, you have to have end-to-end IPv6 connectivity to that host. E.g. if the server is not inside your own local network, you need to have IPv6 connectivity, either via your ISP (rare), or via some kind of IPv6 in IPv4 encapsulation (tunnel).

How to Merge Folders on Mac OS X Without Losing All Your Files (Seriously)

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/22

And still the UI has not improved:

The default folder-merge behavior in Mac OS X is to erase the existing folder, deleting all its files rather than offering to merge them intelligently. Windows and Linux file managers have offered folder-merging for decades, but Macs still don’t.
