    Hits to a website from this IP mean?? Anybody? Have some relatives that are gov employees, that's the most likely explanation. Just curious if anybody has seen that before on their web logs.

    I don't think you have much to worry about, unless you're selling credit card numbers or port scanning their servers. And even then, the Feds contract outfits like Level3 and Verio to do initial investigations, like logging onto or visiting websites.

    Geobytes.com gives its location as Washington DC with a 94% certainty. Your kinfolk in DC?

    Could be the VPN or proxy server (ip address) is in one place, and your relatives elsewhere.
    Especially if they're lawyers. Lawyers would very likely be VPN users.

    Prepare for information overload!

    It looks like a pretty complex can of worms to me; I hope you have more luck in making sense of it than I did...............

    It may well be your relatives, and you are just seeing something higher up the chain that where they are?

    ..........but it is a good excuse for ..........
