    hi,
    I visited a specific homepage about a person that was shared @ an internet community forum. I was wondering if this person could tell my ip address from me visiting, looking, or saving pics from there?

    thanks.

    Yes , it is a simple script used by almost all web pages ( including TSG ) which can log your IP address.

    confused.

    It's basically a yahoo/geocities page - free bandwidth. Is that still possible?

    yes :)

    Your browser sends a HTTP GET header to a website, and the website logs the IP of which that request came from.

    that's messed up because I own a geocities page and I can't seem to tell. How can I do this too?

    Google for a Javascript that tells the remote users IP :)

    ok one more q: Does it still count if the site was "down"? You know, when you click on a user page and it just shows the links to all the pictures that were perviously on a homepage?

    thanks again.

    sorry, my english isn't very well.

    Ok, when you click on the user's page, just an 'index of/ pictures' appears. Like this:

    Oh, no prob. You would be able to view IP's of people if they are viewing anything to do with your website, but on geocities, you do not get to view site logs. So the only way, is if they are viewing a page.
