Apologies, but you are quite right. The only
proofs I can offer are that my email's originating
IP in the headers is the address that I mentioned.

I am listed as the Technical Contact for the
gandalf.mercersburg.net host and the
mercersburg.net domain. (Under a company
email & my full name.)

If I told you that it was some guys from a
certain federal agency, you would probably
really not believe me! :-) Or at least you'd
not want to assist, but anyway, they were
duly impressed with the Snort/ACID setup
and, naturally, the cost of it doesn't hurt
their already-strained budget.

Thanks for the nessus information, and for
those of you who probed me. :-)
