Java Bugs and hair pulling!

I am writing up some documentation and thought I would throw this out because it was so weird and hard to find – when I first tested some new software with “myworkwebsite”.com I kept getting this “invalid ipv6 address” message. The Java 7 JDK has a known bug – hosts whose name starts with the letters a-f cannot connect using the InetAddress.getByName.  So – trying to connect to any webpage that started with a-f did not work – had to use the ip address!
