I ran a retrieval on my laptop at 6:57 pm and got results for 6:56 pm. (I had no idea Adeona had just "talked" with the server.) The traceroute tracked my notebook to the Verizon Wireless tower about a half-mile away.

Adeona is named after the Roman goddess who guided children home after they left for the first time. She was the goddess of safe returns.
