Pornsurfing marathon last night, damn sometimes it's almost impossible to jack off... that's one of the great advantages of living on the street, there's no privacy and no temptation. Here at home with high-speed internet there's always a way to waste a few hours, days, weeks...

Anyway, in my frantic search for virtual flesh, I followed RealPlayer's prompt to install a Divx "plugin" which actually resulted in an installed application on my desktop, one of the few installers that actually works for a non-administrator Windows user. Today I clicked on the desktop Divx icon and was prompted to send information on my system to their server, which I didn't click. There were actually 2 questions, but don't remember the first one... in any case, I got suspicious and was watching with WinDump in another window when I clicked on "Finish", and this is what I saw. The hostname for 63.215.86.198 resolves to "unknown.level3.net" but googling found it to belong to falkag.net. Now I'm curious as to what those 29472 bytes of information were...
