Here's an interesting little activity. Open a terminal and type netstat. It will show you a list of active connections both unix intercomputer and connections over the internet. (such as connections to websites, instant messenger connections...) At the top of the output, it will show a list of tcp connections. Look under "Foreign Address" for an IP address. (something like 1.23.456.789) There might be something like ":http" after it. Copy just the IP address. Then go to www.samspade.org . Paste the IP address into the text box there. (there's only one) Then hit enter. You should then see a lot of information about that IP address such as ISP, country, possibly state, and a lot of other stuff. Try entering your own IP address next. Depending on your ISP and where you are located, you might see your country, state, city, zip code, etc. It's amazing what you can find out with just an IP address. If you have a website, you can probably set up something to see visitor IP addresses even.

A better site to find out everything you want to know about a domain or IP is centralops.net. One of those types of sites that's a must in any list of URLs for troubleshooting.

rbistolfi.dynalias.net is easier to remember.

It's kind of computer-metaphysical that each of us sees a different thing in ALL the quotes showing the sign...as ColonelXie points out

That is too cool! So a script grabs the IP/user agent string and uses the info to create a custom image for each visitor. I had to check it out: http://www.danasoft.com/

No, all Internet traffic goes through the CIA's Internet Serveillance Enhanced Echelon Unit (iSeeU) where all data streams are scrutinized by a team of highly-trained BitWeenies watching for the secret signals of Unregistered Aliens - AND THEN it gets sent to Danasoft's public server for Unwitting Public Consumption.

In other words, you better be careful, Colonel Xie... 'cause They know which mouse button you're clicking.
