It is a small world! Can I beg a favor from you? I notice you are using Firefox. Will you look at this page of thumbnails and let me know if the pictures display properly? If they don't, will you see if there is an extra "5" in the address that shouldn't be there? I am trying to narrow down a problem...

If you really want to hide your IP address use a proxy or an IP spoofer.
(Proxy recomended)

most local machines themselves have dynamic ip addresses...most of the time the ip that get's show if you're on broadband is the ip of your router or modem..not your actual machine. to get a dynamic ip address for the modem or router..you would have to do some dealing with your isp and it could cause connection issues...besides...a dynamic ip address is still an ip address...the standard lease time is 8 days or so...so...it wouldnt really protect anything

Some interesting information about what can potentially be done with your IP address by Mr. Bad guy. There is also a quick scan of your ports to inform you how visible or vulnerable on the internet you are. Check it out at Gibson research. This guy is a pretty interesting fellow and has had his share of evil done against him by denial of service attacks, hacks, and other stuff. There are other tools that he wrote to turn off loopholes in software that windows has active by default.
