Counting big numbers and Expensive flashlights

We've finally run out of IPv4 addresses.  Them's some big numbers. Here's the announcement that came out today.

Costly high quality torches are one of those things I happen to know a bit about having spent some time researching with daughter when looking for a suitable device to turn darkness into light during her night time patrols. Incidentally, we settled on the Lenser T7 which is an amazing piece of kit.  However, if you don't want to spend 60 quid, it's always good to see someone modding something cheap into something expensive...

I'm rather hoping that it's going to help show me the light at the end of this tunnel.
