Oh he’s definitely knowledgeable enough, but just as much as many of the regular folks over at Websleuths that can track a missing person and attain “electronic footprints” finding details of a case much the way that an internet detective does. I think he’s got some paid for programs on his computer that allow him access to ISP’s and personal background info, and he must have one heck of a virus protection program as he seems not to fear “clicking away” (lol).
I found his method legit, and again, fascinating.
anyone can ping and ISP and you can get that ISP from the whois site or waybackmachine...heck you can ping your own ISP right over at speedtest....or from the dos command prompt on your own computer right?
When he talks about meta data on the Avatar....he is just looking at the source code which you can get by right clicking on any pic or webpage.....I think.
