Fairly easily. I can at least trace it back to the fact that you were
logged in to aol, or some local operation.... At that point I'm
relying on the fact that they can trace who was on what port at what
time (always a good question). If they can't I'm SOL, if they can I
would expect them to LART you appropriately.
