Updated unternet.net page with the IPv6 addressing scheme that looks most promising, and since the CGI script on the referenced page seems to be missing, wrote hain_address.py to calculate the address. For my current location here in Columbus, 31.845349N 107.649536W, the prefix comes out to 1472:D9D2:7202::/48.

I admit, it took me all evening to translate Hain's spec into a working script, and still haven't tested it for southern hemisphere values. Sometimes I can be incredibly thick. But what the hell, it's so nice when it finally works.
