Someone with the IP address of has decided they want to try and break my blog. Why? I don't know.

At any rate, they have been banned. I don't really care who it was or what the intent was, but they're banned. If you want to run a security test on my site, get my permission first. I don't come to your house and try to pick the locks on your doors, do I?

Anyhow, here's the technical information about that IP address:
