You are correct. Reverse DNS can easily give wrong information (if the bad guy controls his DNS server, he also controls the reverse table). I know about this, but I don't care too much about it for web access statistics.

    I wouldn't care either with web stats. I was just suggesting that as an example piece of code you might want to add a comment about that problem/feature so that if someone adapted it for an application which did require checking, s/he would know about it.

[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
