This reminds me of the end of the 1995 movie "The Net" where Sandra 
Bullock captures criminals with an enhanced version of traceroute (or 
an enhanced version of the Intertubes) that showed some very dodgy IP 
addresses, and an enhanced version of whois that shows you a picture of 
the person using a particular IP address.

Apparently that whois client was also licensed to "Law and Order" at some 
point :)
