Hmm. That would mean digging back through the logs, so, unless the 
competitiveness starts overwhelming people I'd prefer to just trust to 
folk's sense of fair play. Also I'd venture to guess that the majority of 
large organisations and domestic connections nowadays use dynamic allocation 
or address translation of some sort (though I can't prove it).

In the interests of full disclosure :-) I should declare that when I need to 
check any changes to the download code I usually download my Netball object, 
so that's probably a couple of places higher in the league table than it 
aught to be.
