    When your browser comes accross this page it'll find a reference to that image above, which is hosted on my server. So, your browser will connect to my server and download the image, and I'll be able to get your IP, credit-c--, and user agent string (just describes the browser) from my access logs \o/

    Thoes annoying little images are quite comon actually. In order for the webserver (which hosts the image) to send you data, it has to know your ip (which it gets when you request the image). The server is running a script that writes your ip into the picture data it sends.
