That's going to skew things though, because of ISPs like AOL.  One post 
can be from one IP, and another from a completely other one.  And, more, 
AOL is very popular in America - it's possible that the number for 
America is much higher than it should be.

Not that there's anything you can do about that.

Often it is, and even on DSL this happens.  It is caused by ISPs that 
use DHCP (dynamically assigned IP addresses) which is virtually all of 
them.  Usually you have to pay extra to get what is called a "static" IP 
- one that does not change.

My IP, as an example, changes about every three days.  If I were to 
change my router from keep alive to "when needed", it would probably 
change every few hours.

Re: D is all around the planet
Hey Phill,

I notice that I made the cut a reasonable way up.  Maybe I can drop the
newbie now.

BTW: If there are six of us then we can have Borg idents - I would be 6 of
6.

A Fair Dinkum Aussie (struth mate!)

But, as you know we claim talented people
that live in Australia are Australians.(eg. Russell Crowe(if he's talented))

So you are an Aussie now!

I was born in Yallourn, what a hole!  It's now an open cut mine about 
5x8 kilometers in size.  Destined to be a very large swimming pool, 
unless they level a mountain to fill it again.

Now living in Adelaide... (for the moment)
