The opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics is a week away! Tulsa web design team Redhead Labs will be eager to kickoff this athletic spectacle after this invigorating if not exhausting summer. Our hearts and our eyes will veer toward the London arenas and stadiums with expectations and questions galore. Will Michael Phelps continue his dominance in swimming events? How will the women’s soccer team fare after a heartwarming and enthralling gold-medal finish against Brazil in 2008? Will the ever-rainy summer in London ever clear to help our Olympic athletes? Being an Oklahoma BigCommerce designer, we can’t wait to see how our hometown athletes handle this biggest of stages. University of Oklahoma gymnasts Jacob Dalton and Jonathon Horton are sure to tackle the international competition with gusto. The Oklahoma City Thunder also has three US Olympians in Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden (Serge Ibaka is also on the Spanish national team, heavily favored to contest with the US). A myriad of other athletes representing the great state of Oklahoma and the United States will take their place as one-of-a-kind athletes for the next few weeks! We are eager to cheer on our American athletes in this global competition. Our relations with our numerous international clients have led to some verbal jarring (all in good fun of course) in the spirit of friendly competition, and we can’t wait to see all the athletes take the field, lanes, mats, and more to represent their countries this summer!
It’s the middle of summer and it sure feels like it! This Oklahoma web developer caught a cool spell recently, dropping just below 100 degrees in time for the Fourth of July. Our offices will be closed on Wednesday July 4th, but a shortened work week only means harder work the other four days! We have a habit of making up for lost time around here. But for tomorrow, the team at Redhead Labs is planning on enjoying some good company, good food, and some good times to honor the nation’s 236th year. We want to wish all of our clients, our friends, and family all a safe and enjoyable holiday!

The Internet has undergone a major change recently, one that 90% of web surfers probably aren’t even aware of. Maybe a little background can shed light on the latest topic on the web. In simple terms, an IP address is a series of numbers assigned to each device with a connection to the Internet. Previously, IP addresses contained four sets of numbers (12.3456.7890.12, for example). This is referred to as IPv4 and has just over 4 billion possible addresses. But surprisingly, that’s not enough. In just a few short years, access to the Internet has exploded and it became apparent that the millions of new users would need millions of new IP addresses. They’re getting just that and more. With the new IPv6, there are 340 trillion trillion trillion possible new addresses. That’s no typo – just a lot of new people connected to the Internet! So what does this mean for your online business or personal computer network? Not a whole lot right now. Most devices are still connected to the Internet using IPv4 and are likely to stay that way for some time (it’s only been two days since IPv6 was launched, after all!). It’s something you’ll want to keep your eye on for the future – but right now just read up on how a major global change for good is going by largely unnoticed.
