We are absolutely, definitively, completely and utterly out of IPv4 addresses, warns RIPE

In the real world you'll be using DNS, so it doesn't matter what the IPs are.

The address you gave is... well, invalid, but it's also intended to be a link-local and you're unlikely to actually use that. If you get your v6 addresses from a DHCP server like you do in v4, then your address will look like the one I gave in my original post. You'll only need to remember the "1::192" bit, which is basically no different to v4.
