You have to convert Hex to a regular IP. So convert here
https://www.browserling.com/tools/hex-to-ip
It converts to 0.0.6.0 which is a not a normal IP, it's reserved.

You can look ut up here

This what I get.

He didn't say he searched whois, although that would be the logical place to search.
The following link tells me where I am "seen from"
but when I run barefoot (no VPN) it gives one of several
different locations, depending on time of the month
and the weather in Tallahassee.

So you got the message when you yourself were trying to login to google?

Just the fact that it is in hex is kind of weird. It is not a "normal" IP, so the information is useless. IP's that start with 0 are not regular IP's, they are valid but reserved. These type of IP's are used to broadcast within a network, sort of like a "wildcard" for a specific range.

No I did not. The email mention was in the post you quoted. Link in email sent me to the page with the previous text. To be clear this is an image of the email I received.
