I have just checked my server stats and 25 of the visits were resolved to the US Military Network, why are they visiting my site?

Probably because you have the word "hacking" as part of the title of one of your forums. :p

hehe - :D
but seriously and 25 visits aswell, whats goin on. the server is in Tampa but i am in th UK and as far as i know im not flagged by interpol, CIA or the FBI.

Maybe its George Bush playing my online pong in his spare time?
Either that or the intelligence services are looking up http codes - i dont understand.

I just had an awesome idea: why don't you mail and ask? :)

Anyway, since the you know it's US military, it doubt it's anything important. Or, then again, who knows how they think that their tracer are being tracked...

>>doubt its important

>>email and ask

You are such a suspicious person. I work at a military base. I do all of the two way radios (trunked) for the US Government/Military on Oahu (public safety-- Fire departments, Police, etc) When I go to your site from work... it is from a government computer. The world isn't out to get you....
