But the year was 1924, not 1980, and the place was Kilauea, a volcano falsely, though frequently, accused of having a milquetoast temperament.
Then the 1924 explosions peppered the strip with rocks (some shown here), which had to be removed after the turmoil had subsided.
The 1924 explosions were probably just on the verge of being large enough to generate hot pyroclastic surges--among the most devastating of all volcanic phenomena.

Elz Informational [Page 2] RFC 1924 A Compact Representation of IPv6 Addresses 1 April 1996 The third possible form mixes the new IPv6 form with the old IPv4 form, and is intended mostly for transition, when IPv4 addresses are embedded into IPv6 addresses.
Additional Benefit Apart from generally reducing the length of an IPv6 address when encode in a textual format, this scheme also has the benefit of returning IPv6 addresses to a fixed length representation, leading zeroes are never omitted, thus removing the ugly and awkward variable length representation that has previously been recommended.
Further, the appearance of the address, as if it may be random gibberish in a compressed file, makes it much harder to detect by a packet sniffer programmed to look for bypassing addresses.
