I have never been clear on all that. I always thought that an IP was more like a permanent telephone number, though I realize now it is a good bit more fluid and flexible.

In an aside, over at sayanythingblog there have been a rash of spambots hitting older comment threads, most over a year old. Rob keeps threads open pretty much forever, so from time to time these little asswipes toddle in and drop a pile of nonsensical words with various links sprinkled throughout. The newer ones actually appear to be coherent, though once you actually read it they come apart.

I wish some bright young designer would come up with an electronic Claymore that could follow these spambots back to their points of origin and smack the crap out of them.
