A report on the run up to the Copenhagen Convention 2009
As the summit draws closer and leaders from across the globe are  confirming their participation, pundits are alleging the forthcoming UN talks on a new greenhouse gas pact in the Danish capital will be a farce and has a become an obsession for the media
More than 60 world leaders will be flying to the 15th conference of parties (COP15) in the Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen next month. The participation of several leaders greatly increases the odds that it will end in a substantive agreement, though critics are pouring scorn on the summit.

Indeed, the bone of contention between the two future superpowers lies in border issues and the Chinese don't even need a Dalai Lama to add to its tirade.

A survey, conducted by the European Commission, found that few companies are prepared for the switch from the current naming protocol, IPv4, to the new regime, IPv6. Web experts have warned that we could run out of internet addresses within the next two years unless more companies migrate to the new platform.
The IPv4 and IPv6 protocols refer to the way in which web addresses are created and assigned. Each website has a unique IP address, represented by a string of numbers, such as, which are then given a user-friendly web address, such as, to make them easier to remember.
