Hi everyone, I'm Nathalie from the RIPE NCC. If you have questions/comments for the presenter and want the Session Chair to read it out, please write it here stating your name/affiliation and I will copy/paste it in the Zoom Q&A. Keep in mind that there may be up to a 30 second delay for remote participants, so it's better to get your questions in before the question period begins.
Please note that all chat transcripts will be archived and made available to the public on

Good morning!

Farzaneh Badiei - 20-05-2021 16:04:27
we need different music for each coffee break. I have an earworm

Milad Afshari - 20-05-2021 16:05:39
@Farzaneh +1 :)

Andreas Härpfer - 20-05-2021 16:05:59
You will have to whistle this tonight at the dinner.

Markus Zeilinger - 20-05-2021 16:06:11
Most seen cupboard at RIPE82: IKEA Kallax!

Cynthia Revström - 20-05-2021 16:06:28
lol, how many IKEA Markus chairs have we seen?

Farzaneh Badiei - 20-05-2021 16:06:36

Cynthia Revström - 20-05-2021 16:06:45
I seem to see those chairs all the time

Ondřej Caletka - 20-05-2021 16:06:46
Maybe it is Expedit. You never know.

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:06:54
I've started whistling that intermission music now

James Kennedy - 20-05-2021 16:07:27
glad I'm not the only one, Harry. it's a real foot tapper

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 16:07:41
In 327 years the RIPE-NONAUTH database will be empty

Oliver Payne - 20-05-2021 16:07:54
the RIPE NCC will be releasing an album of 'Greatest Hits'. It's just that tune for 10 hours on repeat

Farzaneh Badiei - 20-05-2021 16:08:07
I am not at the whistling stage. It has just become my life theme song... (hopefully for a week)

Markus Zeilinger - 20-05-2021 16:08:26
@Cynthia, yes there have been some! I am sitting on one to at the moment! ;-)

James Kennedy - 20-05-2021 16:08:26
where can I buy, Oli?

Oliver Payne - 20-05-2021 16:08:37
I'll make sure you get a copy, James ;D

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:08:44
There's a long joke here in England when you ring the tax office (which unfortunately I've done a lot of recently!), where they've got one piece of generic hold music and you often get 40+ minutes of it on loop

Ivan Beveridge - 20-05-2021 16:09:01
@job: if you can also get people to stop using RADB that would be very much appreciated :thumbsup:

Elvis Daniel Velea - 20-05-2021 16:09:09
James, probably it's going to be streamed live on

Oliver Payne - 20-05-2021 16:09:21
yes but unfortunately it's only available over IPv4

Elvis Daniel Velea - 20-05-2021 16:09:44
you mean IPv6 only, right?

Gert Doering - 20-05-2021 16:09:56
oliver: wat?

Oliver Payne - 20-05-2021 16:10:04
it's a legacy song, we tried but the music doesn't work over v6 ;)

Oliver Payne - 20-05-2021 16:10:13
/sarcasm, to be super clear

James Kennedy - 20-05-2021 16:10:17
on vinyl too so :)

Elvis Daniel Velea - 20-05-2021 16:10:44
that would drive adoption to 100% in weeks as more and more people would want to stream it non-stop :)

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 16:13:30
yay for UTC! good move

Robert Kisteleki - 20-05-2021 16:13:34
how about: it will *not* play continuously when using v6?

Robert Kisteleki - 20-05-2021 16:13:45
there's your killer app, right there

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:15:17
@job: yup

Cynthia Revström - 20-05-2021 16:15:50
is it just adding the "Z" indicator? I thought it was already UTC

Chriztoffer Hansen - 20-05-2021 16:17:22
Adding the Z just make the time-zone info explicit, as far as I know.

Chriztoffer Hansen - 20-05-2021 16:17:33
s/know/see it/

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:18:39
ed actually said, in his preso, that there were AMS tz instances that had been cleaned up

James Kennedy - 20-05-2021 16:24:21
:clap: thanks Ed

Piotr Strzyżewski - 20-05-2021 16:24:24
Thanks Ed!

Christian Bretterhofer - 20-05-2021 16:27:01
those companys take XXX EUR/Month and we give that data for free to them?

Christian Bretterhofer - 20-05-2021 16:27:14
do we get it back?

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:27:27
our customers want their mtv

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:31:49
also note that the content producers can use the geofeed data directly.

Cynthia Revström - 20-05-2021 16:32:25
@Harry, I saw your questions, I would suggest looking at the db-wg mailing list, as this has been discussed

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 16:32:39
@christian - publishing geofeeds data is a 'selfish' act, it is selfish in the sense that you only would publish that data if you see a benefit. For example if you have netflix viewers in your blocks, geofeeds might help. for many IP blocks there is no benefit to sharing where it is located

Alex Band - 20-05-2021 16:33:44

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 16:33:44
in other words: if you dont want to give this data away for free, well, then dont! it is optional. if you dont like it dont use it

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:36:29
the american idiom is "red herring" it is the content providers and users who benefit.

Shane Kerr - 20-05-2021 16:39:53
This is why all servers should be UTC everywhere always. :-D

Alex Le Heux - 20-05-2021 16:40:20
@job: others would kill for an easy way to update geo data for their IP blocks that works in a timely fashion... ;)

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 16:42:00
exactly, geofeeds == self serving

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:42:09
@alex: i hope violence is not necessary. though it is not clear what other tools are available for dealing with lawyers :)

Andreas Härpfer - 20-05-2021 16:43:59
I'm wondering what influence/impact publishing intentionally wrong data will have. I bet there are folks out there that would find this interesting.

Shane Kerr - 20-05-2021 16:45:21
Surely that is supposed to read "IPv4" and not "IPv6" when they're talking about being feature complete?

Wessel Sandkuijl - 20-05-2021 16:45:25
@Andreas: geo databases review the data and can (and will) choose not to process the suggested geo data

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:46:00
I've always wanted to try to double check a lot of IP geolocation

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:46:10
like run a traceroute and check what the upstreams rdns shows etc

Alex Le Heux - 20-05-2021 16:46:44
@randy :D

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:53:01
@ed: thank you

Daniel Karrenberg - 20-05-2021 16:55:20
Folks: The RIPE NCC is listening to what is being said here.

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:55:36
OMG! Spies everywhere!

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:55:50
I find it very worrying to trust an European RIPE database fully to an American vendor

Hans Petter Holen - 20-05-2021 16:56:36
We are indeed listening. Suggestion and reasons for concerns are particularly welcome.

Shane Kerr - 20-05-2021 16:58:11
Denis maybe it's time to start a GoFundMe campaign for a new laptop? ;-)

Harry Cross - 20-05-2021 16:58:22
Audio still choppy even with no video :(

Kurt Kayser - 20-05-2021 16:58:24
And another feedback: I find 20+ Mails from RIPE NCC about RIPE82 in my current mailbox. This is getting a bit out of hand.. Please consider reducing the mail-load down. thanks.

Markus Zeilinger - 20-05-2021 16:58:42
@Hans, yesterday there was said, that there are no cloud providers in europe meeting the requirements. Which european cloud providers have been investigated?

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:58:49
bye dennis

Erik Bais - 20-05-2021 16:59:29
If you want to look at the RIPE DB history of objects .. -=>

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 16:59:29
or maybe it was my side which bounced. at&t :(

Markus Zeilinger - 20-05-2021 17:00:01
I don't thing we shoudl argue against AWS but more for a european solution!

Randy Bush - 20-05-2021 17:00:17
@markus: support

Daniel Karrenberg - 20-05-2021 17:00:46
I just provided input on history to the DB Requiremetns TF: Should I send this to the db-wg list too?

Hans Petter Holen - 20-05-2021 17:01:08
@markus I dont have the information in front of me on which EU providers the NCC has evaluated.

Daniel Karrenberg - 20-05-2021 17:01:23
@erik: ouch!

Job Snijders - 20-05-2021 17:01:37
thank you all!

Hans Petter Holen - 20-05-2021 17:01:55
@Markus notet, finding in-region providers is on my list.

Nathalie Trenaman - 20-05-2021 17:01:56
Thanks all, this session has now ended. See you later at the RIPE Dinner:
