i do from work. what is the significance of this question?

I could understand if Nystrom wanted to know. But he could probably find people's IPs from the DP's server logs if he really wanted to know.

That article in that link, was that written in 1998? Gaming stats etc are all data base driven, and each player has a unique db username. Would be completely ridic for a game server to track gamers via IP for the purpose of score restoration as 99% of gamers will be connecting from a residential block of IPs that change periodically. IP tracking is not likely done for in game stats such as score. It's done for demographics on the gamer as a resource. They can look up what geographic region you are connecting from as well as carrier just from a whois lookup on your IP.
