    This isn't mine but I found it searching the web for info wondering myself what the Acme servers were for.

    So, Take a look and let me know what u think, should I put on my tinfoil hat or what?


    Scroll down and look at what will be on your 'host file' if you have
    Vista.
    Or similar for XP and older Microsoft Operating systems..

    Something very much like

    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    ::1 localhost

    Have a look at the ip address of
    102.54.94.97
    38.25.63.10

    Just two harmless examples ????
    OR do they allow who ever is on the end of them to control your
    computer.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just what is 38.25.63.10

    Lets investigate shall we, afterall those really nice # signs in
    front of those ip address's would cancel out any possible usage.
    Or do they!!!!!
    We are told
    "Since they begin with # in front of them they are just comments/
    notes, meaning they can't do jack s**t!
    However removing the # would make them valid." !!!!!!!

    Indeed, a hidden program already embedded into the Microsoft software
    or downloaded to it could do this.
    THAT IS THE POINT.!!!!!!


    Using hxxp://www.ip2location.com/demo.aspx

    In the 'Enter IP Address(es)': location
    Tap in 38.25.63.10 And press 'find location'.

    The answer is;

    IP Address
    38.25.63.10
    UNITED STATES
    DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
    WASHINGTON
    Zip code 20007
    isp: PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL INC.
    Domain: COGENTCO.COM

    Note the zip code and the Domain.

    Have a look at http://www.xdweb.net/fod/cracks.am/

    The Cogent Communications part IS Cogentco = Cogent and first two
    letters of Communications.

    Have a good read!!!!!!


    Have a look at this google map (his maps are not too clear)
    hxxp://maps.google.ca/maps?ie=UTF-8&...n%20DC%2020007

    Tap on the < arrow to slide it over to the left a touch.

    Despite the name change in 1910, the name "Langley" still lingers on
    to describe the 'McLean neighborhood' where the CIA HEADQUATERS is
    located.

    Zip 20007 is 3.4 square miles in area

    The CIA Headquaters is 2 miles EAST if where it says 'McLean'... so it
    is bearly 3 miles from zip 20007.

    That is..... The CIA HEADQUATERS are 3 miles from an IP address that
    just happens to be on YOUR 'HOST' file.

    WE ARE TO ASSUME, THAT OF ALL THE IP ADDRESSES FROM IP 0.0.0.0 to
    255.255.255.255. Currently at over 4 BILLION individual addresses.
    Microsoft, just happened to pick one 3 miles from the CIA
    HEADQUATERS.

    AND STICK IT ON EVERY MICROSOFT WINDOWS SINCE AT LEAST WINDOWS 95.
    And never changed it.
    I've just looked.

    On hxxp://www.microsoft.com/technet/arc....mspx?mfr=true

    'Done up like a kipper' by Microsoft and the CIA all this time.!!

    Best thing is to delete everything above the 127.0.0.1. local host.
    the first link at the top of this page tells you how to edit your
    'Host' file.

    Good Grief! The addresses are rem'd out and just given as examples. Even if you enter the exact domain the hosts file entry will never be used. If you want them to be used delete the hash symbol. Otherwise nothing above localhosts is ever read. Delete it if you wish, it makes no difference, it is benign.

    Just noticed the date of the original post. I guess everyone else realized it was bogus...
