being tracked.

If I could only tell you the story ... I'm pretty sure the police obtained
my cellphone signals for a month on either side of a certain date of an
event which first made local news and then was spread (mostly by copying
since there wasn't any new data) to around the country, so, I had my "two
minutes" of fame as an "anonymous RP"  (the police refer to me as the RP
for some reason).

It's interesting how the story spread - where everyone just copied the
information (both accurate and inaccurate) - but the local news had it
almost right since they talked to me and to the police afterward.

I can't tell you the details, but they asked questions which, had I
answered wrong, they would have known, because they *knew* the time and
place where I was in the middle of nowhere at those times.

Let's see what happens when/if it ever gets to court. They have the guys on
something else right now.

But that's for another place and time (maybe I'll tell Jeff - who certainly
heard the news - but he's probably the only one I'd tell *exactly* what
happened).

The net is that it's a good idea to get really good at removing the battery
or trusting airplane mode so that your cellphone doesn't tell the police
(or the bad guys) *everywhere* you've been in the past months...

i'm sure they refer to you by much more than that, but rp means
reporting party or reporting person.

Heh heh ... yeah. Probably.  
I do talk a lot so the detectives were writing stuff down for quite a while
(you'd think they'd use tape recorders for heaven's sake).

All the papers I've seen simply list me as "the RP", and even when they
introduced me to others, they referred to me verbally as "the RP".

I think I'll make that my next nym ...  

Anyway, back to the free wifi scanners that *don't* have obnoxious ads!
