Hi All,
To quote a rather nice Moody Blues track, "Isn't Life Strange",
shortly after my little site went live, I was faithfully checking
through the log to see which enlightend people had been a
visiting, when a couple or three ip numbers seemed a little out
of the ordinary, Being in the network business you do get to know
the regular ip's from the not so regular.

Anyway I checked a few out and lo and behold I traced one back to
a workstation in a large military inteligence establishment in the
US and another one to behind a firewall in the UK Gov domain, these
within 10 days of the site going live, since then I have had, and
still get, a smattering of hits from similar sources even the nice
people at NASA.

As for fudging the logs, you can fudge the hostname but you cann't
fudge the ip number if your system logs it. Without the right ip
the router system breaks.

Best Regards
