SpamAlert (no, just a stalker)

A flag pops up on a protective database, the flag reads:
repeated activity from ip address: 81.153.126.*

Opens a command prompt and does a reverse dns look up:
81.153.126.* = registered to British Telecommunications. Allocated internet node = Solihull.

Opens look-up table:
ip address registered to customer: [name]
Ah, him.

ip address registered to residential property: [address]
There.

Opens profile database and runs a lookup query:
81.153.126.* is running Microsoft Windows XP (which surprises me because I thought he’d switched to Apple)

Monitor:
Resolution: 1280 x 800
Colour Depth 32bits

Browser:
FireFox v5.0 En – GB, Build 1.8.1.16/Gecko/20080702 v 2.0.0.16
(winces, you should get that vulnerability patched) Javascript v1.5 installed.

What else do I want to know about him?

Do I want to know the last 25 websites he visited? Read the last 10 webmails he accessed? Do I want to collect the last 10 passwords or UserIDs saved in his browser?

No. I’ll leave these intact. For now anyway.

Dude, this number of daily visits – and believe me, I’m logging all of them – tells me you’ve got an unhealthy obsession.

You’re unwell. Seek help now.

    I once had someone think I was stalking them when in fact they page was simply left displayed in my browser after I left home in a hurry, and back then I had a pretty crappy connection that kept dropping and coming back. Each time the connection was coming back, the browser was reloading the page.

    Anyway, I’ve nominated you for an award thingie (even though I am not quite sure what it is about exactly): http://unsubstantialbubbles.net/post/2008/08/23/Awarded

    This is why, I don’t bother with statcounters anymore.

    Actually, thinking about it – and I was doing just that – I’m reminded of something similar happening to me a while back.

    I was suddenly getting an unusually high number of hits from the same IP address – dozens per day.

    It turned out to be a mate of mine who had set my site up as his browser’s homepage.

    It may be a similar thing for you.
