I Live In Great Britian (Scotland #1) And Live Next To A Builders Yard So Materials Wont Be A Great Issue. I Want The Bomb To Go Off While Im There But Back A Bit Obviously. Ive Got Around £20 ($40 or so). It Needs To Be Quiet So I Wont Be Scene And I Want It To Be In A Bottle Or Bag Etc.

Cheers M8 If You Can Help.

Quiet bombs aren’t something I have any experience with.

I received an email from someone asking for help building a bomb in Scotland. It’s probably nothing to worry about but that’s your decision to make not mine.
I have attached an Excel spread sheet with information from my log files for http://www.boomershoot.org. It was this website where he got my email address.
I’m not sure but I suspect he came in via two different locations on two different dates. The IP address in his email is the same as that shown in lines 8 through 44 off the spread sheet which are today’s visit. But there is something odd about that. He didn’t click on a link on another web page to visit that web page (http://www.boomershoot.org/general/BombHelp.htm). He went directly to it as if he typed it in or clicked on it in an email. Hence it may be that the earlier visit, as shown in lines 2 through 7 of the spread sheet from the same ISP are related. Those lines show someone did a Google search for “making a bomb”, found my web page, and then made it a “Favorite”.
I know Microsoft will also be glad to help with the Hotmail account if that would be useful.
Below you will also find the header from the email which might be of potential use. Further below you will see his email and my response.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further help.
