Who The Hell Is

This blog has used the Site Meter service (see below) since March 9, 2005. Site Meter supplies a hit counter for this blog that provides the total number of visitors to this blog since that time. The counter, in green-text, is located at the upper left of this page. Not only does Site Meter record visits to this blog, but the service supplies some information about each visitor (NO NAMES!) by IP Address (see below) and City, State, and/or Country of the visitor. An IP Address look up service identifies the ISP (Internet Service Provider) supplying this IP Address:

Road Runner HoldCo LLC
13241 Woodland Park Road
Herndon, VA 20171.

This blogger is getting creeped out. Who is this visitor? If this is (fair & balanced) paranoia, so be it.

An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there."
