strange, i looked at the ip in the admin to check if they actually managed to get into anyone's account, ever - and it seems not. If anyone else has similar messages please contact me directly. it is most worrying where the ip is located.

IP address location means nothing though - mine always says I am in Kentucky - USA. I'm not

IF someone uses a spoof ip, it's easy to find out. Google it and it'll be a vpn or anon-browser. Had problems in the past with dickheads posting madness and making multiple accounts.

haha, chaos outside our house, i assume someone crashed just down the hill. it's a salted and scraped road but very steep. was comedy to watch people turning round.
In 2010 there was a volvo totally sideways blocking the road for a week!

My work IP used to hop around during the day, depending where there was least load. So most of the morning I was in Detroit, then at lunch time I'd switch to somewhere in Japan, mid afternoon I'd be back to Essex.
Except I was working in the Midlands.

Had a similar system here, living/working in Sweden. Meant I could access iPlayer from my work PC in the afternoon......... No other times tho!
