Paranoia Strikes Deep

Anybody wanna 'fess up to owning the IP Address that visited here yesterday and read 112 page views for over 2 hours?

I only have 105 blog posts.

And I'm not THAT interesting. Honest. I worry that all 30 of my readers should be more discriminating...

Meanwhile, the DNS lookup site brings up nothing. And it probably is nothing. But if some member of the Nerd Herd needs something to do, I'd be interested in knowing more about that IP addy, which I won't post here. Don't worry, I've screen-capped this one.

I'll issue a Get Out of Work Card good for one afternoon of Slackin' to the someone who can help.

Oh. Dear. God. That is not me, much as I would love to Slack and spend that much time on your site...time-permitting, and all.

I passed the f**k out at 10 last night, and barely did any blogging.


That always freaks me when I see stuff like that.

If, per chance, I did stalk you [I mean that in future tense], I wouldn't do it in a creepy bad way, and would probably send you an email and be like, "Yo, Joanie, I'm stalking you...heh...heh...heh."

I've seen something similar. someone from the New Mexico chamber of commerce read about 100 pages of my site.

It would be interesting to find out.

The most I can ascertain, if my preliminary hunt is correct, is that it is possibly a South West Bell customer. New Mexico?

Isn't this fun!?

Peggy U said...

Wow! And I thought I was bad! I wonder if it's some automated thingy, though. You spose?

Joan of Argghh! said...

An auto-bot that reads every page and it takes it 2 hours?

Nah. Somebody with an IP cloaking device, apparently. I hope they'll just write me and tell me they're stalking me, like Erica.


Erica said...

I am definitely stalking you, but in a "I wonder who left a cool comment @ Joanie's" kind of a way, around 3-5 times a day.

Trust me, I'm harmless. Although, I will fess up to doing something EXTREMELY stoopid today, of all days: I was checking out your blog today, sometime around three-ish, and then ran out to get lunch, was gone for about 30-40 minutes...

Totally forgot to take your blog off my screen, so something weird like that may have come up. No freaking 2 hours, though. That's just bizarro.

Joan of Argghh! said...

I never noticed. I'm busy packing! Woohoo!

We're gonna try and leave tomorrow after work and head for Macon and spend the night, just so it won't be such a 3 day marathon of driving.

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Wasn't me. This is my first time here. Had to check out Joan of Argghh! because I laugh at the name (in a good way) every time I see your comments on JonnyB's blog.

Joan of Argghh! said...

Welcome, Dawn!

Any lurker at JonnyB's blog is welcome to be a lurker at mine.

Please check your wrath at the door, however. Just "Dawn" will do nicely!

I'm heading to Helen tonight to meet up with Sam & his wife for dinner and a few beers. If you decide to make it all the way to Helen tonight, please do let me know. Email me and I can always send you my cell number. Just so ya know - I doubt I'll check my email after five o'clock today, though.

Safe travels!

Not me. I read faster than that. A few months ago AT&T called up and told me I have to start paying them more money AND they've got a great new (mandatory) feature, moving me from dynamic IP to a static IP.

Somehow having people able to look back all the way up my pipes does not seem like a "great new feature." Especially since Google now paints a map with a great big red target on my office based on nothing more than a search of my first name, job and city.

Mad William Flint said...

Meh. I wouldn't worry about this. I get it every once in a while. Someone trips over my site, then back or forward traces through the archives.

Hell, I do it to blogs all the time.

Joan of Argghh! said...

So, it was Yooouuuu!!!

Welcome, Mad William.

Now we have Wrath and Madness to go along with Slack and Rum.

Here's what happens to me: I'll start reading a blog, and Presto! my kids need me because an ear has fallen off or something, then Whilst I'm over there, I figure I might as well do that load of laundry, clean the floor up, and make a bed. Pretty soon, thirty minutes have gone by and I've forgotten all about reading.

Kim said...

I was just gonna say, there are times when I've left myself on some blog somewhere while something else is going on. Except, this one ain't me.

Have fun on your adventure!

Joan of Argghh! said...

See, that would explain one long page view, not 112.


Skully said...

Hell, I pass out all the time.
Might take me several hours to read one post!
