    My download software (getright) suddenly asked if I wanted to download from
    127.0.0.0 -- it didn't want to download a specific file or anything, just
    the IP.

    I clicked to cancel download and nothing else odd happened.

    What was that?

    Acid test or Jack-Acid test?

    That IP is your computer's loopback address.
    It possibly means that you have already downloaded the file once and
    it's in your browser's cache. Getright wants to know if you want to
    get it from the cache or download from the net again.
    Just a hunch.
