Re: They should never have cried wolf

"You've seen something that approaches real world accuracy in sci-fi and police TV?"

Of course not -- don't be dense. But if you've ever seen a CSI or NCIS or Spooks or some similar show then you've almost certainly seen them with the resident techie looking at a screen with IP addresses like "365.29.1.903".

Valid or not, that pattern is recognizeable even to non-nerds as "IP address", even if it's fiction.

Which was my point. Back to your regularly scheduled pedantry.
