That was probably me, after I saw the odd call on my live off-the-air
map on my UIwebserver!
My ISP is "ATT/Yahoo Internet" formerly "SBC" formerly "Southwestern
Bell" formerly "Pacific Bell" a.k.a."PacBell". Have you ever noticed
how the old domains, router names, etc tend to stick around behind the
current "nom-du-jour" forever after the endless mergers, acquisitions
and company name changes in the telecomm business???
