    If you try to vote from the same IP address only one vote counts, no matter how many devices of computers you use.
    Would you like to put a foil hat on lay-a-way?

    No offense, a poll like that is rarely updated in real time. It is quite standard for the votes to update every 10-15 minutes or so, as CNN's does. But now what many people there are admitting to is purposely attempting to rig the vote by voting on multiple devices and on multiple browsers. You know if it was a real vote those actions would be called fraud...

    It was probably in the international section because Germany just opened up their own investigation into the shooting of the foreign exchange student in Montana also.

    Just like we have opinion polls about other countries... other countries can have opinions about us...

    True but this one could get interesting really quick though. Germanys law is set up in such a way that they may bring a criminal case against someone that commits a crime against one of their citezens (most likely due to the way the eu is set up) and we have an extradition treaty with them. This could turn into a large international mess for both the United States and Germany.

    That depends on how the IP address is logged. If I have four devices on my home network, they have four different addresses in the fourth triplet.

    So, you could get 100.200.300.001, then .002, then .003, then .004. Those are all different, to me or to a computer.;)

    And yes, I know those numbers are not what a normal home network uses.:cool:

    You have 4 different ip addresses on your local network, but unless you are paying for multiple connections from your ISP you have a single IP that the internet sees your traffic as. Your local network IP (from your router) isn't transmitted outside your local network, and all your traffic will be shown under the single IP from your ISP. Now your IP can change, but your traffic at any given time from all your devices on the local network will share the same IP.

    That's true. So to change that IP address, just re-start your router or modem.;)

    You can also restart your phone, tablet or other device that doesn't use a modem/router.

    Not really, for DSL even if you don't pay for a static IP, you will have a dang near static IP. For Cable, there is some variance, but your IP will not change with a restart most of the time now with modern modems unless you are in a highly congested area. Heck, I managed to keep the same IP for over 2 years on cable without paying for static IP by pure luck though many restarts and even modem changes even with a move across town. It all depends on how your provider has their system set up to allocate the addresses and the timeout before the address is up for reallocation.

    Well gee, one case must be the rule, then.:rolleyes:
     
  13. Not likely to happen, but there is a slight possibility.

    'U.S. extradition treaties applied to crimes “committed within the [territorial] jurisdiction” of
    the country seeking extradition'

    Here's a link if you'd like to read about it, already in the works. I don't known that we'd hand over an American citizen our justice system found not guilty, but it could cause a lot of reprocussions. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/05/1...e-foreign-exchange-student-killed-in-montana/

    Not trying to get to off topic, just explaining why it was located in the international section.
