If I had been using Quicken back then, he WOULD have gotten all of my info, but I was using MS Money at the time.

But I kept noticing something called "HH" was booting with my system, so I traced it to a batch file which was cleverly planted in my system, it started a hidden mIRC client, which was sending to a specific IP address with a user name and password!

I mean this guy was Stoopid! And, his IP resolved to a few blocks away from me. He was also a Cox Cable user, I just bundled up everything, all of the files he had sent, and the information I had gleaned from it, and forwarded it to the Abuse department, and then I started pinging his IP every hour. It stopped returning the ping after 2 hours, and it no longer resolved to the guys address. so I'm pretty sure I got him.

Of course I could have been the one who was fooled, a master hacker could have made it look like that guy, I have heard about such things.

But the point is, IP addresses are not reliable indicators of who is using them, and they no longer can trace you to your house, no matter how many times Astrid did it on Fringe.

Might be bending a few forum rules here...
