Hey Dustin,

Thanks for the plug in your show about our custom WordPress plugins. And yes, pun intended. ;-) Moreover, GREAT show as always. I'm having a lot of fun using the FREE myIPneighbors (i.e., http://www.myipneighbors.com/) you spoke of to see who is sharing the server Sean and I use for beAutomated.com as well as who's sharing the various servers our clients use. Wow, what an eye opener, eh?!

Sincerely AND thanks again for hosting such a quality WordPress podcast,

Randy

Hey Dustin,

I incorrectly pointed to myIPneighbors above, which is more of a paid service than a FREE one, rather than the one you pointed out (and I like a lot better) which is MyIPNeighbors (i.e., http://www.my-ip-neighbors.com/). Gotta love those folks who buy up URLs that are very similar to their competition's! Sorry about any confusion this has caused.
