    Noticed that too.  skyfall.htm is... an interesting reference.

    fbi.gov is Akamai'd, which means that it'll come up with a different 
    IP address pretty much everywhere...
    
    [cydonia:~] rtucker% host www.fbi.gov
    www.fbi.gov is a nickname for fbi.edgesuite.net
    fbi.edgesuite.net is a nickname for a33.g.akamai.net
    a33.g.akamai.net has address 208.153.34.215
    a33.g.akamai.net has address 208.153.34.216
    
    [rtucker@puck rtucker]$ host www.fbi.gov
    www.fbi.gov is a nickname for fbi.edgesuite.net
    fbi.edgesuite.net is a nickname for a33.g.akamai.net
    a33.g.akamai.net has address 216.200.14.100
    a33.g.akamai.net has address 216.200.14.114
    
    You can see the same effect (and IP's, most likely) on 
    www.akamai.com.  :-)
    
    Hope this helps.  -rt
