Class In Session: IP Tracking 101.

First of all I would like to thank all of you who posted such supportive messages. I must say that it really means a lot to me. I do not think that these emails would have hurt as much if they did not come on the anniversary of Grampa’s death. Again, thank you my friends.

Class is in Session:

IP address is a number (in the form of a dotted quad) that is assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider (ISP) to be its permanent address on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses to locate and talk to each other on the Internet, much the same way people use phone numbers to locate and talk to one another on the telephone.

There are these nifty little programs that you can use to track your IP. I used them on my blog, our family web page and my business site (<--- See link over there). I like to know WHO and HOW people find my sites. You can also go as far as to track emails that you receive. Cool, don’t you think?

Miss Daisy was kind enough to foreword me these emails. Now it took me quite a long time to walk her thru forwarding them to me. The FIRST thing Darren and I checked was to see if she was sending them to herself. Well, she is not. Which I am not sure if that made me feel better or worse. Had she been sending them to herself I could say, “Wow, she is really having a hard time dealing with this.” “This is a coping mechanism”. This poor lady lost her beloved nephew and my Grampa all in about 6 weeks.

So we tracked the IP by using THIS and THIS. It was QUITE alarming what we found. This morning I decided to track my IP s that have hit my blog. Can you imagine my disbelief when I realized that the person who is sending these HATEFUL MEAN emails to Miss Daisy ALSO HAS READ MY BLOG? 6 times today as of the moment I started this entry. Yes my friends, the person harassing Miss Daisy if a part of my online family. Someone that I let read about MY FAMILY and my friends.

So, let me put this out there, You should be VERY ASHAMED of yourself. Grampa sure would have been. Harassing a 71 year old woman is PATHETIC! Besides this is VERY ILLEGAL and the next time Miss Daisy receives another email of this magnitude I will be filing a complaint on behalf of her with your provider.

P.S. I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
