The DOD?

It happened before:

And it may happen again.

Here are new journal entries that I posted yesterday. Probably the FIRST I’ve ever posted that speak my mind regarding the present state of the US politically.

Yesterday I posted a few thoughts about the election. Simple enough.
This morning I looked at my log files and saw the following:

68.171.20.87 – – [04/Nov/2004:08:21:42 -0500] “GET /modules.php?name=Journal&file=display&jid=194 HTTP/1.1” 200 23280

Curious to know who it was I went to http://www.arin.net and punched in the IP.

The DOD!? Curious to see if the DOD has EVER visited my site before (from this same IP) so I took a look through my log file and found the following:

Here’s my visit to the 194 entry just after I posted it:
192.168.1.3 – – [03/Nov/2004:23:30:56 -0500] “GET /modules.php?name=Journal&file=display&jid=194 HTTP/1.1” 200 25920

Mind the fact that I posted 192, 193, and 194 at random times yesterday but 194 was posted at approximately 11:30. In just over 3 hours my site was visited by the DOD. Now if my site was visited by tens, or even hundreds, or thousands of people I’d say “Enh, just a routine visit.” But in reality my page is visited by friends and family. That’s about all. Interesting stuff. I’m not sure what to make of it but as the link at the top of the page shows… “things” happen. I’ll keep everyone in the loop. It’s curious to know that someone has read my journal entries at the DOD. I wonder if they’re worried about me. Will someone look into my background? Will they keep an eye on me? The poor girl linked at the top of the page went through a rediculous ordeal speaking her mind on the net. I don’t believe I said anything wrong in any of my posts. If anything does come about due to my posts I’ll be sure to let everyone know. Watchin the logs…. I’m GP.
